The Fast and the Curious

We review Veloce Indoor Speedway.

Veloce Indoor Speedway isn’t the place to go for cheap thrills. Just thrills. Pewaukee’s new house of haste (W229 N1400 Westwood Dr., boasts two winding tracks, Italian-made electric go karts that approach 50 mph, and per-race prices that approach a fine-dining meal.

One adult race ($16), one junior race ($12) and a pair of $6 annual licenses can drain the wallet, though rates go down if you buy in bulk. None of which is on your helmet-covered mind while zipping through hairpin turns, heart rate up so you can keep those lap times down, because data-packed printouts and rankings await afterward. Staff are patient with nervous or inexperienced kids, who drive slower karts, and they can be slowed further by remote control. But my rookie 6-year-old sure was quick to ask for another race.
