    Safety has always been K1 Speed’s number one priority. Here’s how we’re keeping our locations clean and safe during your visit.

    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!

    Parties

    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 party, teen birthdayskid’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?

    Accommodations

    We have developed our San Diego indoor go-kart racing location with your needs in mind. 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!

     

    If you are planning a party for multiple people, you will find a variety of private room rentals available, of varying sizes, as well as an extensive list of catering options. Your satisfaction is important to us at K1 Speed, and we have done everything possible to accommodate your needs and those of your party. If you are planning a large gathering, we are confident you won’t find a better option than our San Diego karting location! Experience indoor go-kart racing today!

    Came to K1 speed with a bachelor party of 16. Everyone of us had a blast. The staff was very professional. I’d highly recommend this to any group.

    Lots of fun! I (34 year old female) came with my sister and dad to celebrate his birthday. We had fun, tho they both got hit rather roughly and it ruined the vibe. We refunded our remaining races. Would return and try again.

    Everything was great. Staff was very friendly and we will definitely be back. The only thing I wish was different is it felt a little crowded on the track. We had 11 so maybe a few less racers at a time if possible would make it even better. Keep up the good work. 👍🏻

    The experience as a whole was great except for the food.Half of the menu was not available and what it ever they had was gross and it look like a 5 year old put it together. The facility it self was clean.

    Having the cars be electric is awesome. They are super fast and don’t have the exhaust smell. Our group had a great time fighting for the fasted time.

    Almost always the staff do their best to look out for the safety on the track, however recently I’ve seen less and less flags being used which has had me in the middle of some very fast moving T-bone accidents and road rage. Usually it’s one of the most entertaining things to do during the day time but if there’s someone who has no idea what they’re doing but are swerving in between the whole lane it can be really aggravating really quickly. Wish they would divide the teenagers from the adults, otherwise this place is a 5/5
