FAQs

Where should I stay?

 

K1 Circuit is located in Winchester, CA: 32240 Grand Ave, Winchester, CA 92596. While there aren’t many accommodations directly near the track, there are plenty of choices in Temecula, Murrieta, Lake Elsinore and Hemet, which are each about a half an hour or less away.

 

What do racers need to wear? Do I need to bring my own race gear?

 

While we will have some suits and helmets available for use, we strongly encourage everyone to bring their own gear if they have it. After all, things are going to get sweaty out there!

If you bring your own helmet, it will only need to be DOT certified. Obviously, if you have a higher certification than DOT (for example Snell SA or K), you’re more than covered.

 

If you want to bring your own suit, karting suits with Cordura or other abrasion-resistant materials are required.

 

Finally, gloves are required. These can be your typical run-of-the-mill work/mechanic gloves that are very affordable (under $10) from any home improvement store or online if you don’t have or don’t want to get karting/racing gloves.

 

Again, aside from gloves, we will have helmets and suits at the track if you don’t own any. You just might want to sort out affordable options for your own use if you don’t want to share!

 

Optional gear such as neck protection, rib protectors, etc. can be used but is not required.

 

Will Ballast Be Used at K1 Circuit? 

 

No, just like at K1 Speed, ballast will not be used at K1 Circuit.
