    Indoor Go Kart Racing San Diego – Downtown, East Village

    Looking for a fun thing to do in San Diego other than visiting Sea World, the San Diego Zoo, craft beer breweries, or going to Comic Con? K1 Speed San Diego provides a thrill like no other in town! Located in beautiful downtown San Diego, near the Gaslamp Quarter, East Village, and Petco Park, K1 Speed San Diego provides exciting racing action in an incredibly convenient location. Our K1 Speed San Diego location 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.

    Our Racing Options

    We have a number of different ways to experience indoor go-kart racing at our San Diego location. 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 for best lap time, 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 Karts

    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 location features 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 indoor go-kart racing location in downtown San Diego is uniquely equipped to handle a wide range of parties. If you are planning an adult birthday partychildren’s birthday partybachelor or bachelorette partycorporate event, or team building exercise, let us help. Our race packages are tremendous fun and our location is a world-class entertainment venue – suffice to say, we can provide an unforgettable experience! Why would you bother with anything else?

If you and your friends are coming in on a Friday night or Sunday afternoon to take part in our Arrive & Drive program, you’ll find a spacious lounge, complete with black leather couches, plasma televisions, our Paddock Lounge eatery, and a collection of authentic racing memorabilia. We want you to feel like K1 Speed is the place to go to for karting!

    The place was the best time my family of five had in along time. It’s was better than most rollercoaster rides. Brandi and Chris made the experience as awesome as it can get. Thanks for the entertainment.

    My boys loved it. Reminded me of SkyZone with its go over to that keyboard and list who all is gonna be driving and give us your email so we can inundate you with junk mail for the rest of your life, and pay $25 an hour for this experience, and oh wait you're gonna need to pay a 1-time "membership" fee in order to drive, "think of it as a drivers license" (baloney), and sign up to drive now, but then go wait somewhere for 2 hours, oh, I've got a great idea, how bout you and your party go wait over there in our arcade/pool table area while helping yourselves to our overpriced concession counter... LOL. Capitalism and Leisure Activities... Gotta love 'em 😌. Sidenote: thankfully they're spraying the helmets with Lysol between runs. But you gotta watch these young hires. They get a little spacey sometimes. The go pro helmet is $5 extra and fun later when you're watching it... And dropping the link on your Instagram. So you can look cool. 😉
