REVIEW THE

Track

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!

Had a blast was lucky only me and my brother in law had the two out of the three races by our self so we had the ability to hot lap like crazy. Probably the most fun I had the many times I've been 💪😎🤙

It was my first time go karting. The staff were patient but there was no initial instruction. I floundered during the practice laps.The one thing I would really like to see improved is the handling of groups. We had a group of sixteen people with an advance reservation and we had to stand around for over an hour before being able to use the track. We should have had the priority!

My wife was super nervous as this was her first time at K1 Speed. The staff were soooo fantastic. After a bit she was ready to roll and we had a fantastic time together! Big time kudos to the staff at San Diego K1 Speed for being so great at what they do.

Great track and facility! Reserved an event for 9 people. Check-in was quick, and they had us on track for the first race by 9:30 (our reservation time), and wrapping up with the awards ceremony after our second and final race by 10:30 (the end of our reservation time).Super impressed with the execution and efficiency of the team here! Only complaint is that I didn't get first place in my group but that's probably just cause I'm not good at go-kart racing.
