“With the introduction and popularity of electric racing series around the world, I’m ecstatic that K1 Speed has an international series of its own,” says K1’s CEO. “The K1 Speed World Championship is the first international electric karting championship in the country, and we already cannot wait to see the best of K1 Speed compete against each other during the championship finale.”
Those interested should start racing at their nearest location’s racing leagues for the opportunity to partake in this amazing international competition, the largest of its kind and with the biggest money purse to win!
