Octane Raceway will open in Scottsdale

The Valley leader in active entertainment, Octane Raceway, announced the opening of their new kart racing and entertainment venue in Scottsdale. Opening this spring, Octane Raceway will move their current Phoenix facility to a new location in the Pavilions at Talking Stick. The new Scottsdale location will be conveniently located just off the 101 freeway and Indian Bend Road. The venue is designed with a one-third mile racetrack and a unique layout where each lap begins indoors then winds through an outdoor section of the course 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.”

Adding to the allure of the new space are state-of-the-art high-speed electric karts that travel up to 45 miles per hour.

The first track in the United States to offer this model, the Sodi RTX electric kart is exclusively available at Octane Raceway at The Pavilions. Focused on delivering a great racing experience, before switching from gas to electric karts, Sanders traveled to Sodi headquarters in France to personally review and test the prototype RTX’s advanced technology and handling characteristics. Impressed with the kart’s technological advancements, Sanders confidently selected the model for the new Octane racetrack. 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 emissions.

The sprawling new facility covers 65,000 square feet allowing Octane to 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 to further customize their events. Corporate clientele can leverage Octane’s new flexible meeting spaces, the Indy and Daytona Rooms, to conduct meetings and presentations taking advantage of the venue’s full audiovisual capabilities. The spaces also can easily transform into the perfect setting for “lunch & learn meetings” or fully catered dinner parties.

Octane Raceway at The Pavilions boasts additional casual gathering spaces including the Billiards Room, the Trackside Bar & 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 Bar & Grill, serves up classic American fare including hamburgers, pizza and sandwiches with a full upscale catering menu available for group events. Domestic and imported beer and wine are available with a strict two-drink maximum enforced for kart racers.

Besides heart-pounding racing, many other activities await Octane guests. One of the most popular events at Octane Raceway is the Phoenix International Raceway Pit Crew Challenge, which is available as an additional enhancement to any of the group or team building experience packages where guests complete a full pit stop on a real NASCAR. The Segway Performance Course at Octane tests participant’s balance as they race against the clock with either an indoor or outdoor set up increasing both the challenge and fun. An interactive arcade is adjacent to the Trackside Grill for added fun for all ages.

A seamless transition is planned from the current location into the new Pavilions facility. The Phoenix location will be fully operational through March with the new location opening this spring.
