Been to a few cart tracks in my day but not like this. Made you feel like a racing driver with a fire suit and helmet . We had a business event and had the city course for 2 hours. 4 heat races and a 15 lap final had me beat. Loved ever sweat soaked minute!!! Great time!

Went during a weekday afternoon and it was mostly quiet. We bought 4 races for each person, but I was able to only do 2 before I got motion sickness so bad that I couldn’t race anymore. No refund for the missed laps...

Had a group of friends visiting from 3 different states and we decided to go to F1 on Monday June 11th. I went online a few days before and saw you could make reservations so I called on Friday the 8th. I spoke to a nice woman who told me that they only take reservations 2 days in advance, she said we probably wouldn't need reservations since Monday is not busy but if we wanted reservations we could call back on Saturday. Since only 6 of us were driving we opted to not make the reservation but looked online to verify their hours. Unfortunately when we arrived on Monday (over an hour from our house) the place was closed, and the hours on the door did not match what was on their website. I send in a message to let F1 know of our disappointment and we never heard anything, so I decided to post this. Beware of the website hours, and apparently the staff doesn't know the days they are open either. Before making a long journey out there, call that day to confirm they are open. I had been here before on a Monday and it was empty so maybe they changed the hours, but it would have been nice for the staff to tell us or the website to reflect that. Unfortunately based on the reviews I have read and my experience, customer service is dead at this place.

We stayed at a hotel across the street and walked over because it had food and a bar. We walked in & it was, light, bright & clean. We were not there for racing, only food & drink, but 300 car oil distributors were there for a meeting and racing. The cocktails were fine and the food good (this is not gourmet restaurant, sort of pub food). The staff were very friendly and engaging. The thing that I liked the most the was that if your are going to race, they put a wrist band on you. If you have a wrist band on, you will not be served alcohol. Only when they cut off your bracelet can you get an adult beverage and also are then done racing for the day. They also have billiards & darts for a fee.

Get ready to pay an arm and a leg for less time RACING than sitting around waiting for the useless orientation. Seriously they told us we needed ONE HOUR for orientation and we only paid for about 30 minutes of racing (3-4 races). My SO planned a birthday event for me here and mentioned to them several times the occasion and they conveniently did not mention at all that we would not be able to bring an outside cake until we arrived with it in hand. We purchased an additional one for $20, which we all agreed did not taste nearly as good as the Marble cake from Wegman's. At least they let us stow it in the fridge... Upon entering they gave us a red wrist band when we told them the group we were part of. Our group consisted of 9 friends, but we had reserved the entire indoor track. Apparently they would be able to fit up to 18 people on one track, but that seems way too overcrowded. Plus they would limit how many people could race for the finale anyway. ORIENTATION & SUITING UP They directed us to one of the conference/classroom type rooms near the back past their show case vehicles. They had a 5 page form of information, contact information and liability for us to go through. We all arrived and started filling this out. 15 minutes past the time of the start of the orientation a woman comes in to check each of our driver's license. Another 15 minutes of idling and waiting passed before a tall man walked in to go over the "Safety" and "Flags". We did not have their instructional video and the guy missed several points such as going over what the black signs on the table meant. In addition we were just informed that they had NO LOCKERS or areas to put our bags. He mentioned there was a coat check, but we did not trust the unscrupulous characters we encountered. Thankfully we had friends just spectating so they watched our stuff. We spent more time idling and watching the other group ahead of us before being ushered downstairs to the track level to get suited up for the equipment. MORE INSTRUCTIONS could have been helpful to put on the layers of headsock (balaclava), neck brace, disgusting race suit and helmet with smudged beyond belief visor. They had limited sizes available and they were all ill-fitting anyway. Those sad excuses for suits were ALL RIPPED and FILTHY. All of the photos taken must have been from when the suits were new! If you saw us in real life you'd see that most of us were unable to zip them up or had very ripped crotch areas. Most of them stank of previous racers' sweat. Let me tell you once you put those on you will also be overheating. They did not have enough neck braces available when we were getting ready so one of the team members assured us that they would get us one BEFORE we started racing. They forgot and we immediately received a RED FLAG so everyone needed to stop immediately so they could give one of my friends the neck brace which they forgot. They did not help us with suiting up or figuring out how everything went on. The only thing they assisted with was putting down the extenders for the pedals if some of us were too short. RACING We all shuffled into our go kart based on the left most board and each race begins with the single file cautionary lap. Let me tell you those flags that they waved were extremely confusing and inconsistent. One of the people would be waving Yellow and another would be waiving Green then another waving Yellow. They weren't a huge stickler for giving out warnings in our group but I got hit repeatedly. There's obviously no power steering so there's a lot of upper body force needed to direct the karts the way you want them. The seats have NO CUSHIONING whatsoever. If you get hit you will be jolted. I received several lovely souvenirs of bruises all over my body. See the photo for the largest bruises that were in direct contact of those horrible seats. I happened to get hit or spin out and end up stuck several instances in areas that had no one immediately monitoring what was going on so it took several moments for someone to help me as these karts have no reverse direction. Number of laps remaining is determined by the FASTEST racer in the group... I think I only got 2/3 of the full amount. STAFF Most of them are indifferent, but as I mentioned they are not the most scrupulous folks. At the end of our scheduled session one of the guys working at the lower level was trying to print out our scores in vain. (This seems like a common occurrence after reading previous reviews. Don't even expect this.) Only the last race seems to matter for the winner to do their victory lap. In addition this kid felt the need to commandeer one of my friend's phones to put his phone number and snapchat handle! We don't need your creeper vibes! Overall this place is way overpriced for the drenched in sweat, sore all over experience you'll receive. What's the point of even making us wear those tattered suits and setting aside an hour to waste for "orientation"?
