The Most Exciting Challenge GP Season in K1 Speed History
You asked, we listened. Introducing the GoPro Challenge GP Powered by K1 Speed.
This exciting new chapter of our ultra-popular Challenge GP racing series will be the ONLY OPPORTUNITY to use GoPro cameras to record their racing experience. Capture your pole-setting lap and study how you did it. Document your rise through the field and share it with the world. In this series, we actually encourage you to film.
And that’s not all…
The “Championship Within a Championship”
All-new for 2020, there will be a quarterly championship within the championship. Racers who score the most points every 3 rounds will win a brand-new GoPro Hero8 Black camera (a $399 value) – the latest and greatest from the action camera manufacturer we love the most. If we have a tie, the driver with the best podium record wins. So first we’ll see who has the most wins – if there’s a tie, we’ll look at who has the most 2nd place finishes. If that’s a tie, we move on to 3rd places, and so on until the tie is broken.
And this isn’t limited to select locations – every United States location (including Bend, Oregon) will give away 4 cameras per year.
The GoPro Hero8 Black
Super smooth image stabilization, 4k video, four different digital lenses, in-app horizon leveling, high-fidelity audio, waterproof, and so much more. This is the GoPro Hero8 Black. You don’t have to imagine how your go-kart racing footage will look – just take a look at some of the onboard footage we’ve shot for our Instagram since start of December 2019. It’s phenomenal. Trust us – you’re going to want to win one of these amazing cameras.
4 Opportunities to Win a GoPro
Got someone unbeatable in your series? Don’t worry, racers can only win the camera once per year. For example, if Racer A won after the first 3 rounds, then scores the most points the next 3 rounds, they won’t win a second camera. Instead, we’ll give it to whoever scored the next-highest points from those last 3 rounds. With 4 different winners, there’ll be 4 solid opportunities for you to win.
But you can’t win unless you race. So, don’t miss out. Enroll at your local K1 Speed track for the next Challenge GP.

What It’s Like to Race During the GoPro Challenge GP
- Total number of competitors = total points for the final winner. (15 racers means 1st place gets 15 points)
- 1 points less for each following place. (Same example, 2nd place gets 14 points, 3rd 13, etc.)
- 1 bonus points awarded for having the fastest qualifying time.
- Finishing results are final on day of G.P. and will not be changed.
- In case of an incident during a position race, it will be the manager on duty decision to change positions accordingly after speaking to drivers involved.
- If a driver initiates a retaliation of a race incident during or after a final position race, that driver will be dropped automatically to the final position spot in his group and loss of points.
- If at the end of the season, there is a points tie, the driver with the best podium record will win.
- There will be two qualifying rounds consisting of 14 laps each. Your single fastest lap time from both qualifiers will be used to determine your position at the start of the final race.
