KART RACING GIANT , OCTANE RACEWAY MOVING TO NEW SCOTTSDALE LOCATION THIS SUMMER
Posted by Tom on 05/24/2013
New facility features the only permanent indoor and outdoor track in the
Octane Raceway , announces today the opening of their new racing facility and
entertainment venue in Scottsdale. Fully operational through June, Octane
Raceway will move their current Phoenix facilities to a new location in the
Scottsdale Pavilions this summer, which is at the intersection of the 101 freeway
and Indian Bend Road. The new venue is designed with a one-third mile racetrack
and a custom layout where each lap begins indoors then winds through
an outdoor section of the course that is covered by a permanent steel canopy.
This is the only full-time indoor and outdoor racetrack in the United States.
“The new location in the Pavilions is a fresh and more upscale version of Octane
Raceway’s proven karting entertainment concept,” says President Scott Sanders
on why Octane is moving to Scottsdale. “The new, central location makes Octane
Raceway more accessible to many people in the Valley, particularly providing
easy access to our existing customer base in Tempe, Mesa, Chandler and
Phoenix as well as puts us in the heart of Scottsdale just minutes from the
Scottsdale Airpark and North Phoenix business districts.”
Drivers of all sizes can expect a comfortable driving experience with fully adjustable pedals,
seats and tilt steering wheels. An added emphasis on sustainability, the new karts will deliver
a high performance ride with zero exhaust pollutants emitted into the atmosphere.
The sprawling new facility covers 65,000 square feet allowing Octane to more
effectively host corporate clientele and social groups of up to 500 people. The
novel 20,000 square feet of outdoor track and patio space gives groups flexibility
and customization of their events. Two corporate meeting spaces, the Indy and
Daytona Rooms, can easily adapt from corporate presentations to dinner formats
because of state-of-the-art audio visual capabilities including dimmable lighting
and ambient background music.
Octane Raceway at The Pavilions boasts additional casual gathering spaces
including the Billiards Room and the Trackside Grill and Victory Lounge. The
Billiards Room comfortably accommodates groups of up to 50 people and
includes billiards tables, foosball and a number of flat screen televisions.
The on-property restaurant, Trackside Grill and Victory Lounge, serves up classic
American fare like hamburgers, pizza and sandwiches with a full catering menu
available for group events. Domestic and imported beer as well as wine is
available with a strict two-drink maximum enforced for kart racers.
Besides heart-pounding speed, many other activities await Octane guests. The
Segway Performance Course tests participant’s balance as they race against the
clock through the adjustable course. The course is now flexible with either indoor
or outdoor set up increasing both the challenge and fun. An interactive
arcade is adjacent to the Trackside Grill and Victory Lounge.
A seamless transition is planned from the current location into the new Pavilions
facility at the end of July.
