    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?


    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.

    Went here with a few friends and their kids the other day. Had a decent time. The staff were very patient with explaining the rules and getting us comfortable with driving the go-karts. The adult karts do go faster than the kid ones, obviously. The kids, we were told, top out around 30mph, but adults go to 45 I think? And even then, that's only if you're on a straightaway. You pay a $7 "membership" fee to get a card, then you can purchase how many races you want to do. 2 races were $40. They had multiple sizes for helmets, or you can bring your own. They call out your name when its your turn to race, and they assign you a car number. There's a digital board that shows the racing stats during the race, then you also get a fun printout at the end that shows your rank and how fast you were going each lap and compared to the other racers in your group. My only complaints are that both races our group was put in the back karts, so we already started behind. Some of the other people we had to race against were super aggressive and would bully/bump constantly on the track. I know that's not the fault of the K1 crew, but nothing was ever done about it. I would for sure go back, but probably with a big enough group so that we could race on our own lol
