    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!

    Wish there was more to do as we waited, but the track itself is very technical. Loved it.

    My bros and I were here last July. I have to say it was a lot of fun and that I'd love to run again. Didn't do too bad on the leaderboards considering it was my first kart race.

    Go karts. We have all have driven them. You putter around a loop for a couple laps. Maybe you get out and push so you can pass someone. It's fun.K1 is not that kind of go kart. This is heart pounding, barely tamed, La Mons-esque racing. They make you realize why super cars have electric motors in them.You rocket around for 12 laps and you understand why Nascar is a sport. It's physical and exhilarating.Bonus - they have a snack bar that puts many restaurants to shame.

    Fun once you got the chance to race. However, the wait time is 2-3 hours. Especially on the weekends.

    Great venue. We had a team building event here, and it was absolutely what we needed. We didn't reserve anything ahead if time. We showed up 30 minutes after opening and they were able to accommodate our party of 11 without an issue. Highly recommend this venue for energizing your office team and building rapor umoungst the team. It was great to see the new guys build relationships with the old guys that have been around for quite some time.
