Rev Your Engines at R1 Indoor Karting

Lincoln's pro-designed indoor go-kart track brings Talladega dreams to Rhode Island

Posted

There’s nothing wrong with having an overwhelming need for speed, but when your heart pumps high octane fuel and there’s enough lead in your foot to make you a public safety concern, pushing ten over the limit with the windows down isn’t exactly going to cut it. Racers gonna race, but the safety of others means that your Talladega dreams might be both 2 fast and 2 furious. That’s where R1 Indoor Karting in Lincoln comes in. Screaming down straightaways and power sliding around corners is no longer relegated to your rush hour fantasies thanks to two European style tracks and electric karts that can hit speeds of 40 mph. The whole complex was planned by professional European racecar driver Mike Hezemans, so the racing here is the real deal. R1’s got other attractions like bowling, billiards and a restaurant coming down the pike, but really it’s about one thing: unleashing that inner speed demon. 100 Higginson Avenue, Lincoln.
