Have you heard about the new 68,000 sq. ft. steel building being designed with two floors of speed? Coming early summer, Colorado Springs will be home to Overdrive Raceway- the first two-level indoor electric go kart facility in the country.
It will feature multiple ¼ mile Formula One race tracks that are sure to provide hours of family entertainment. The lower floor is being designed with parents and kids in mind, while the second level is being laid out for those looking for speed.
And along with two levels of racing excitement, what likewise makes Overdrive unique is its accessibility to drivers who no longer have use of their legs. Allowing others a chance to get behind the wheel- who might not otherwise have one- the company has purchased four hand-controlled go karts ($12,000 each) for use by paralyzed and leg amputee drivers.
“We really want to be inclusive to everyone,” says Jim Mundle, Overdrive Raceway Owner. “Businesses can be a vehicle for good and I want to give people experiences they couldn’t otherwise have.”
