Get ready to start your engines! Autobahn Indoor Speedway will open soon in Jacksonville, Florida, bringing the excitement and fun of real racing to everyone. The new speedway, which is located just off Interstate-95 and Butler Blvd. plans to open on in April of 2014.
According to Autobahn's Managing Partner, David Larson, "Indoor kart racing has been popular in Europe for many years and has recently found a strong following on the west coast of the United States. Autobahn Indoor Speedway is extremely excited to be bringing the first European style indoor electric kart racing facility to the Jacksonville area.
At Autobahn Indoor Speedway, everyone can be a race driver and feel the rush of being behind the wheel of Italian made adult racing karts that approach speeds of 50 MPH. If you are new to racing, rest assured, because the experienced and friendly staff will teach you some basic racing techniques to help you to feel confident and to be competitive during your first race. There are even Junior Karts (with a little slower speeds) suitable for the younger crowd if they are at least 48" tall.
Since the speedway is indoors, the weather not a factor. The indoor facility is heat/cooled and kept at a comfortable temperature year round. Sodas and snacks are available for refreshment between races.
Autobahn Indoor Speedway features High Performance, Italian made Racing Karts (think fast cars) that you can drive on either of two indoor grand prix style tracks. These are not the ' go carts' you may be used to as a kid. According to Larson "We have spared no expense. Our karts are the highest performance, state of the art electric karts available. One of the first things people notice is torque of our electric motors - that acceleration is amazing! The handling is also top of the line with hydraulic disc brakes, a rear differential and competition style racing tires."
The electric powered Karts are zero-emission and are engineered for safety. The speedway provides all necessary equipment to race including clean head socks and full-face helmets.
Autobahn Indoor Speedway offers the popular "Arrive & Drive" race format. Racers are assigned to one of the upcoming races, so reservations are not required. Up to 10 drivers will compete in each race to set the fastest lap times.
Autobahn Indoor Speedway is a fun and exciting place for company outings, social groups and birthday parties. Various group race packages are designed to meet the needs of most events but a custom package can be arranged (including private full facility rentals). Groups have reserved race times, exclusive use of the track during their races and they can compete individually or in teams.
