Date night continues!  See the first part of our date HERE

I have seen a few racing photos on instagram and was so excited to find out that K1 Speed was here in Salt Lake City (Sandy to be exact). So we added it to our Utah Bucket List and were just waiting for the time to go check it out.

This is the perfect double date activity, or group date, the more people the better. You can race each other which is super fun, or if your group was really big, you can watch others in your group race each other which is a blast! I would know because I did both. I raced the first race with our group, then I sat the second race out and cheered on from the side lines. The race was 14 laps long and I must be getting really old because I got motion sickness. I usually only have that issue in the car when someone else is driving, not when I drive, but these cars are super fast, and with the helmet on, it just proved to be too much for my stomach.

Even though I got sick and didn't want to race the second race, I would absolutely go racing again! It really was a ton of fun. We couldn't stop laughing, and sometimes you just have the need for speed!

Dan and Matt, these guys were trash talking all night. Men.

Obligatory double date photo.

Shockingly, Dan won! Look, I was just surprised because he is such a cautious driver on the road, but he ended up schooling all of us. And he beat the average for first time racer.

We had a great time at K1 and recommend them for the perfect double or group date. Kids can ride too, but need to meet height requirement, and can't race with adults, so be sure to check out all the rules on the website before you go.

Good morning! we just found you guys on Insta, and started following you right away. We have a 'group'.. ok its 4 of us (2 couples) that go out every week, and we love to find fun and exciting things to do around the SL Valley. Thank you for all the tips! ok, now for the the 'following directions part'. I would have the Tomato Basil Soup, and I am betting my lovely wife would have the Very Berry Salad. We have actually been to a different carting place in the valley a few years back for our friends (in our group) birthday and had a blast. Some in our group dispute the results of that night. Others know the truth. :) We would love to get back and settle this once and for all.. who is the fastest! (me) Thanks guys!

I would get the dream salad or the pita combo with potato bites. Their lemonades look delicious.

I would love the tomato basil soup!! Like your husband I am super cautious on the real roads but would love a chance to get some speed out of my system!

Lisa Petersen Thu, 02/16/2017 - 13:21

This looks like so much fun and perfect for a double date with our adventurous friends. It would be fun to eat somewhere new too.

I have heard the best things about K1! It is so cool that it prints out how well you did, that's so fun! Then you can really have bragging rights haha. I would order one of Aubergine's yummy salads! I definitely have the need for speed since it is our anniversary in 2 weeks and I am in charge of planning it and am totally out of ideas! Entered on instagram as @mckenzieryan!

I would love to try something new for date night! The berry salad looks so good and fresh. Love berries on my salad. I need speed in my life because I feel that I'm always dragging behind my 5 kids. When the kids are finally in bed and it's my turn to relax with the hubby, it's a right to not fall asleep early. I would also love to whip my husband's butt on the track!!

How do you choose at Aubergine? It all looks so good! I'd love to try the tomato soup and a falafel pita. And racing sounds like such a fun change from the movie rut! It's hard to figure out what to do for date night in the winter!

Aubergine is awesome! Acai bowls rock, especially the Thai. Being gluten free, I am grateful they serve a small sandwich on Brazilian cheese bread (a caprese panini) or you can just buy the cheese bread itself!
What could be more fun than racing your sweetheart! Combining dinner at Aubergine and fun at K1 Racing would be a fabulous date especially during the slow winter months! Having the wind blowing in to r hair wiuld feel like summer is coming!
