The first two US locations of K1 Speed have just re-opened as part of the return to normalcy after the coronavirus pandemic. The tracks in Atlanta, Georgia and Salt Lake City, Utah opened their doors on Wednesday, May 6, 2020 in accordance with their local government relaxing of restrictions effective Friday, May 1, 2020.
A representative from Demaras Racing placed a phone call to K1 Speed Salt Lake City shortly after 1:00 pm (Mountain Daylight Time) to ask about progress. While the location has taken necessary steps to ensure a safe experience (see video below) customers had not walked in the door…yet.
Clearly, Utah has a need for speed. They’re among the first stats to re-open go-kart tracks, and earlier this week a 5-year-old Utah boy was pulled over while driving his mom’s car on Interstate 15 north of Salt Lake City. Somebody needs to take that kid to K1 Speed.
