2020 E-World Championship Cancelled
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED
With heavy hearts, we have decided to cancel this year’s K1 Speed e-World Championship due to the COVID pandemic.
Instead, all United States qualifiers for the 2020 e-World Championship will be automatically invited to next year’s e-World Championship. You will be joined by anybody new who qualifies this year. The date for the 2021 e-World Championship is still to be determined, but we’re hoping for our usual time at the end of March. We’ll try to have a concrete date at the beginning of next year. We’ve just got to see how this pandemic plays out.
Since the event will be bigger, prizes will also increase for 2021’s event: the World Champion will now get $18,000, second will receive $9,000 and third will net $5,000.
We understand how frustrating this news is. Believe us, we really wanted to put on a great event. But we are already excited to see everyone next year, when we can safely host an event that’s worthy of the time, money, and effort our racers spent qualifying for it.
Thank you for your understanding, and apologies for any inconveniences caused by this cancellation. We look forward to seeing all our qualifiers in 2021 for an even better K1 Speed e-World Championship!
With 2019 in the books, we now have a complete list of qualifiers for the second K1 Speed e-World Championship! These individuals have earned at least 4,000 K1RS points over the course of last year, are at least 14 years of age, and are not an employee at K1 Speed.
A total of 73 amazing racers qualified for the United States Championship. This year’s competition should be considerably more intense than last year’s competition. Last year, we had knockout events that narrowed our qualifiers down to State Champions. These 12 State Champions then competed for the US Championship.
This time, however, we’re inviting ALL qualified racers to compete for the United States title – not just a dozen racers. So we’re expecting racers from all over the country to fly out for their shot at representing the US in the K1 Speed e-World Championship final.
Here’s the list of qualifiers categorized by the K1 Speed location they race at:

US Championship/World Championship Finals
All qualified racers have been invited to this year’s US Championship event on (DATE TBD). We’ll use a unique track layout to eliminate any home track advantage. The winner of this important race will become the United States representative in the K1 Speed e-World Championship finals that evening. Spectators are encouraged to visit and see the best from around the country AND world!
The World Championship final will see the US representative race wheel-to-wheel with the fastest racers from our international franchise countries: Mexico, Canada, South Korea, China, France, and Puerto Rico for the title of K1 Speed’s second World Champion and the winner of the $15,000 Grand Prize – the biggest award of its kind! And remember, second place receives an impressive $7,500, and third place will receive $3,500 – plenty of big money up for grabs!
Here are the qualifiers from around the world:
