Indoor Go-kart Racing San Diego – Downtown, East Village
San Diego County is the spiritual home of K1 Speed. Our first-ever location was opened in Carlsbad in 2003, and we have been drawing racing fans from the city of San Diego ever since. We are pleased to say that with the opening of our downtown San Diego indoor karting center, near East Village and the Gaslamp Quarter, our fans no longer have to make the trek up the 15 or 5 freeways! Our K1 Speed San Diego center brings indoor go-kart racing to the heart of America’s Finest City! We invite you to come down today – it’s the same thrilling experience, much closer to home.
If you’ve visited our K1 Speed Carlsbad location, then you know just how impressive our all-electric karts are. However, if you’ve never made the trek up north, or are new to the sport of indoor go-kart racing, you’re in for a surprise! The karts at our San Diego center feature 20hp electric motors, providing them with superior performance to gas-powered alternatives. Around our roughly one-quarter-mile indoor kart track, they can reach speeds approaching 45mph! You can rest assured, whether you drive a Porsche every day or a bicycle, you will not be disappointed in the performance!

Our Racing Options
We have a number of different ways to experience indoor go-kart racing at our San Diego center. By far our most popular is our Arrive & Drive option. With this package, individuals of all ages* can come in anytime and experience the thrill of indoor karting, without the need to schedule a reservation. Simply show up and start racing – it’s that easy! Our Arrive & Drive races are 14-lap heats against the clock, allowing individuals to race for the win regardless of where they slot in the starting order, providing for a fair and evenly matched playing field.
For groups of 8 or more people, we also offer a range of go-kart racing packages. These packages are great for groups, as they provide exclusive use of the track during your heats, reserved race times, and even a podium celebration for the winners! Perhaps best of all, our race packages are structured after a Formula One or FIA GT race weekend – rather than race against the clock, you race against each other for position! Whoever passes the checkered flag first wins!
Our indoor go-kart racing center in downtown San Diego is uniquely equipped to handle a wide range of parties. If you are planning an adult birthday party, children’s birthday party, bachelor or bachelorette party, corporate event, or team building exercise, let us help.
