(October 14, 2014) – 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 that it will officially open its unique and exciting racing experience at The Marketplace Mall on Tuesday, October 28. Owned by husband and wife franchisees, Eyal Farage and Karen Davis-Farage, operators of Pole Position Raceway locations in Jersey City, NJ, at Destiny USA in Syracuse, NY, at the Walden Galleria in Buffalo, NY and newly opened Farmingdale, NY, this new facility will add 40 jobs to the local economy.
Located in the southwest section of the mall, formerly occupied by Bon-Ton, Pole Position Raceway’s 52,000 square foot facility boasts one 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 – they are clean and green.
"We are pleased to announce that our fifth Pole Position Raceway location will officially open its doors to Rochester on Tuesday, October 28," said Karen Davis-Farage, president and co-owner of the Pole Position Raceway franchise. "Indoor karting is one of the fastest growing forms of family entertainment in the country. 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, concessions and V.I.P spaces for private parties, personal celebrations, corporate events and fundraisers.
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.
