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 Francisco

Our K1 Speed San Francisco location brings indoor go kart racing to the Bay Area. If you live in Oakland, Berkeley, San Jose, San Mateo, Millbrae, Burlingame or a nearby community, it is a short driving distance from San Francisco International Airport, Golden Gate Bridge, Oyster Point or Marina, making it one of the best indoor event venues.

 

Our indoor karting location is a state-of-the-art entertainment venue featuring a professionally designed racetrack, spacious lobby with snack bar, extensive collection of authentic racing memorabilia, and meeting rooms perfect for special events or business functions. However, what truly separates K1 Speed apart is our collection of high-performance, zero-emission, environmentally friendly all-electric go-karts. We live in a changing world and we recognize that we must all do our part – our aim is to deliver an authentic, genuine racing atmosphere while maintaining as small a carbon footprint as possible. With our European electric karts, we can do just this. Not only are they more eco-conscious, they offer superior performance to their gas-powered cousins. If you want to experience the thrill of wheel-to-wheel racing action, and become the best go kart racer you can be then try indoor go-kart racing at K1 Speed San Francisco today! Residents from Oakland and the Greater Bay Area are welcome.

Arrive & Drive Racing

Our Arrive & Drive racing program is perfect for both novice and veteran enthusiasts. Competitors hit the track with up to 11 other racers to race for the fastest lap time. The clock never lies and winning the heat requires skill, natural talent, consistency, and sound strategy. Should you try to follow the line of the racer in front of you or should you create a gap in traffic so that you have the track all to yourself? These decisions will impact your on-track performance and your chances at setting a fast lap time. By racing against the clock rather than for position, competitors don’t have to worry about being blocked or having the unlucky fate of being stuck behind a slower driver who just won’t get out of their way!

 

During each race, competitors can monitor their performance in real time, thanks to our live telemetry system. Every time a competitor crosses the start/finish line, his or her lap time and overall position will be displayed on a projection screen. This allows racers to keep track of their lap times, make adjustments on the fly, and gauge their performance in comparison to friends, family members, or strangers. This live data stream makes the race an immersive experience and gives the racer a sense of the stakes at hand. Don’t be surprised if the nerves are tingling at the end of your heat – the feeling of speed and competition can become addictive! If you want to experience this feeling yourself, the Arrive & Drive go-kart racing option at K1 Speed San Francisco is for you. Barring private closures and our monthly Challenge GP events, our Arrive & Drive package is available every day of the year.

Special Events, Corporate Events, and More

For parties of 9 or more, we recommend reserving one of our many racing packages. This guarantees the party exclusive use of the track during its races and allows friends, family members, or co-workers to race head-to-head against each other for position. Our racing packages are tremendous fun and provide a genuine racing experience. Whether you opt for our Mini Grand Prix – a sprint race that affords no mistakes and requires fast learning – or our Le Mans Endurance event, you’ll walk away with a smile on your face. Our race packages feature qualifying heats, standing-start races for position, and podium ceremonies for the winners, complete with trophies and a photo session. These racing packages are perfect for:

 

 

If you are interested in our race packages, we can also provide you with a range of local catering options as well as meeting room rentals. We want your experience to be pleasant and memorable, and would be happy to tailor your reservation around your specific needs.

The staff should have better training. They are polite, but do not offer any orientation. Being a first time client I expected more.

• Experience: Super fun with a group of 4 or more. We went with our colleagues (7 total). Safe track, just one sharp U-turn and the rest are medium to easy turns. Top 3 folks do get real medals (not pdf) at the end!• Karts: They have plenty of karts. Not all karts are the same though I got one that had great handling and speed, but another one had a bit worse handling. They do regularly maintain the karts though, I’ve witnessed it.• Food: Don’t even try the food here - pizzas are doughy, cheesy, fatty• Parking: Plenty of dedicated parking spaces.

I love this place (when it's not too busy, Saturdays can be a nightmare). EJ was pushing me to break the 28seconds barrier, and I got it on the last race of my day with a 27.8s! The staff are awesome, the track is great, and the karts are mostly awesome (kart 4 needs some love on the break pedal).

Overall a great experience and facility. The front desk could use a good manager though.

It's a pretty nice track. It's pretty small though, but you get tens of circuits. It's great for company events.

SO FUN but you got to wait a while before the race. I suggest putting your phone in the cubbies they have since one other person with us had their phone slip.

I really like the track layout here. It's challenging, and I haven't completely figured it out yet. Had a little trouble with hoodlums on track and lethargic staff, but definitely worth a visit if you find yourself in the area. The track marshals were quick to replace a bad kart, which happened to me twice, but they were so quick replacing it that it wasn't a big issue. If you're staying in an airport hotel, the Doubletree is easy walking distance to the track. The Embassy Suites is a little farther walk, but still doable.

all personnel were very helpful & friendly-karts are very uncomfortable, and pedals don't really have any effect on what the kart is doing, but that's a corporate problem.
