GAINING SPEED

Yes, they’re go-karts, but forget any notions you have about sitting on a hot track breathing the exhaust of rickety old jalopies. These state-of-the-art Italian-designed Formula EK20 racers emit no exhaust on the indoor (and air-conditioned) speedway. Pole Position Raceway is just a mile off The Strip, situated next to The Palms Hotel and Casino, and features electric, 18-horsepower karts on their European-style course. The quarter-mile track offers junior and adult races starting at $22.

Junior karts are available for those 48 inches tall and go up to 25 miles per hour, while the adult height requirement is 56 inches and karts travel up to 45 mph. A timing program captures each driver’s individual lap time, position and rank during the race and issues the personalized stats post-drive. Races typically include no more than 13 participants and last about 10 minutes.
