Pole Position Raceway, America’s leading chain of state-of-the-art indoor motorsports entertainment facilities – with the fastest electric karts on the east coast – today announced it will have the official grand opening ceremony of its unique and exciting racing experience at Savannah Mall on Tuesday, February 3 at 2:00pm. Owned by husband and wife franchisees, Eyal Farage and Karen Davis-Farage, operators of Pole Position Raceway locations in Jersey City, NJ, and Syracuse, Buffalo, Farmingdale and Rochester, NY, this new facility has created 40 new jobs in the Savannah area.
Located on the upper level, next to Dillard's, Pole Position Raceway’s 47,000 square foot facility boasts a quarter-mile track and the latest in high-performance, all-electric, indoor karts capable of speeds up to 45 MPH. Pole Position Raceway features adult karts for racers who are at least 58 inches tall and separate junior karts for kids who are at least 48 inches tall. Best of all, the karts use electric technology, so there are no fumes. The location also has both inside and outside mall entrances, making group drops offs more convenient.
“We are pleased to announce the date of our official grand opening ceremony of Pole Position Raceway in Savannah,” said Karen Davis-Farage, president and co-owner of the Pole Position Raceway franchise. “Indoor kart racing is one of the fastest growing forms of family entertainment in the country, and we look forward to offering our authentic and exhilarating race experience as another reason people come to the mall, or as a fun activity they can do while they are here.”
Pole Position Raceway offers a variety of options to suit the needs of all racers – from families, to die hard karting enthusiasts. Its “Arrive & Drive” racing is for those visiting the mall that enter a queue to race against others. Pre-Scheduled Racing events are for groups of 10+ and include the Pole Position Challenge, Grand Prix or Super Pole which are 2, 3 or 4 race events culminating with racers receiving 1st, 2nd & 3rd place medals at the Winners’ Circle. In addition to side-by-side race action, Pole Position Raceway also features authentic racing memorabilia, arcade games and concessions. Able to accommodate approximately 300 people, Pole Position Raceway offers V.I.P spaces for private parties, personal celebrations and corporate event rentals.
Committed to supporting the communities it serves, Pole Position Raceway’s give-back charter, CAReS – which stands for Cancer, Alzheimer’s, Recovery and thoSe in need – partners with local charities on fundraising initiatives year-round. As part of its opening events, Pole Position Raceway will partner with the Alzheimer’s Association Coastal Georgia Regional Chapter to raise money to support this important cause.
