Irvine, CA January 17, 2014 – The nation’s largest go-kart company, K1 Speed, will cut the ribbon to their second San Diego facility Monday January 27th at 5pm, and celebrate a special event Sunday February 9th from 12pm-5pm. This location pays a special homage to the karting chain, which opened with their first facility in nearby Carlsbad 10 years ago.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to kick off 2014, and our 10th year of business, with a trip back to San Diego County,” says Susan Danglard, co-founder of K1 Speed, “We’ve opened 18 centers since first breaking ground in Carlsbad, and it’s been a wonderful journey. We look forward to many more facilities and years of K1 to come.”
Residents of “America’s Finest City” will now be able to enjoy the thrill of indoor karting closer to the city center. The company’s new downtown location in Barrio Logan—situated near the historic Gaslamp Quarter and the bustling East Village—will be uniquely equipped, unlike any in the company’s history, to accommodate walk-in guests and groups looking to spend a night out on the town.
