Head Into Stamford to Hit RPM Raceway's Latest Location

Family-amusement franchise opens new facility in Fairfield County.


Published:

Hey, motorheads, need more RPMs in your life? Well, look no farther than Stamford, where RPM Raceway recently launched its sixth location. The new 90,000 sq. ft. kart-racing-and-entertainment facility on West Avenue features electric Italian-made karts attacking quarter-mile tracks at speeds of 45 mph or more. If that doesn’t sound like your speed, perhaps you’ll enjoy the 14-lane bowling alley, multiplayer virtual-reality experience, and/or state-of-the-art arcade.

Event rooms at the racetrack let you assemble for private parties, corporate team-building events — or even competitive races. So whether you identify more with Mario Andretti or Mario Kart, you can put your skills to the test by joining a year-round racing league. RPM Stamford raceway is slated to open in the first half of 2018 and is open to drivers in three categories: Juniors (6+), Unlicensed (12-17, at least 4’10”), and (licensed) Adults.
