Our Background, Goals, Philosophy and More
Indoor karting has grown into a large industry over the last several years, not only within California, but across the nation, and we pride ourselves on playing a part. K1 Speed was one of the first companies to bring electric karts and indoor go kart tracks to Southern California, and since our first location opened in Carlsbad in 2003, we have witnessed an explosion in the market. We see the expansion of the industry as a validation of the sport, which as fans and participants is something that we appreciate. At K1 Speed, we are dedicated to the sport of karting, which is why we operate kart racing centers throughout San Diego, Los Angeles, Seattle and the Inland Empire; as enthusiasts of the sport, our aim is to make it as accessible as possible!
The premise behind the creation of K1 Speed was to offer enthusiasts and amateurs alike an authentic and genuine racing experience in a safe, comfortable, accessible and perhaps most importantly, unique environment. Utilizing advanced European electric karts and indoor asphalt tracks, K1 Speed quickly developed a reputation as being fun and exciting, and our growth has been continuous since we first opened our doors. In addition to our Arrive and Drive racing option, which allows individuals to visit our indoor karting centers anytime and experience the thrill of racing, we also offer racing leagues and a variety of packages for corporate events and group parties, which have proven quite popular. To meet the needs of customers and kart racing enthusiasts who demand more, we also have a Pro Shop - K1 Race Gear – which carries everything that a karter might need to compete at the track. At K1 Speed, our goal is to be synonymous with karting, and we think that we are on our way!
