V17 Press Release August 15, 2007

Velocity 17 opens as new york area’s premiere Indoor karting track and conference center

Non-Stop Entertainment Center Provides Ultimate Adrenaline Rush Including World’s Only Air Combat Center with 8 Flight Simulators.

Maywood, NJ (August 2007):  Engines are revved as Velocity 17 (V-17) opens its doors only minutes from mid-town Manhattan.  This state-of-the art indoor Kart-Racing facility allows corporations and individuals to experience the thrill of unrivalled karting, F-18 flight simulators and much more.  Over 100,000 square feet of non-stop action is located only 13 miles from New York City on Route 17 in Maywood, NJ.

With 1,600 feet of spaghetti-style Grand Prix track, the fleet of 72 imported Bowman race karts offer racing chassis, 12 horse-power electric motors, roll bars, and over the shoulder safety harnesses.  Adults 18+ can pick up speeds up to 30mph with 16 Storm Karts racing the course at once.  V-17 is sure to be at the forefront of corporate entertainment and team-building events for groups large and small as race commentary and spectacular light show and sound system add to the heart pounding environment. 

All karts are linked to the very latest Formula SuperSport Timing System which displays laps completed, gap between karts, lap speed and the fastest lap, all to 1/1000th of a second. This information is stored, and at the end of the day, the fastest driver statistics are presented to event organizers. A “Hall of Fame” is being created at www.V-17.com for honoring winners.

V-17 is the area’s only indoor performance track to combine full wrap-around bumper protection designed specially for indoor karting.  The braking system and seats ensure extra protection and comfort as guest safety is a top concern at V-17.

The V-17 facility was created with the highest standards in mind. The V-17 experience includes racing attire, high-speed electric karts, banked corners, smooth tarmac racing surfaces, health club style locker rooms, outstanding catering facilities and more.

Rounding out the V-17 attractions are the F-18 Air Combat Simulation Center a true fighter pilot experience; V-Racing Center a race driver’s virtual paradise; and Tactical Center train just like today’s military swat teams and police officers.  Make sure to visit the Velocity Café for delicious treats!
