    Indoor Go Kart Racing San Diego – Downtown, East Village

    San Diego County is the spiritual home of K1 Speed. Our first-ever location was opened in Carlsbad in 2003, and we have been drawing racing fans from the city of San Diego ever since. We are pleased to say that with the opening of our downtown San Diego indoor karting location, near Petco Park, East Village and the Gaslamp Quarter, our fans no longer have to make the trek up the 15 or 5 freeways! 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. Your satisfaction is important to us at K1 Speed, and we have done everything possible to accommodate your needs and those of your party.

    Great place to relieve stress with your work teams. We had a group of 9 and we had a great time racing eachother and talking about it afterwards. We will be going back for some rematches!

    I love go karts and anything mechanical in general. This place did not disappoint. Go karts are really fast as advertised, you need to wear a helmet when you race. The atmosphere was very friendly although it was a little quite on the weekday when we went. They had two pool tables and video games while you wait and they also offer food no beer or alchohol, for obvious reasons. Race track had nice lenth where you could really test the performance carts! Highly recommend.

    The Karts go FAST, the after race analysis they print out for you feels legit and had our group going again and again trying to improve our times haha. A super fun way to spend an afternoon with friends looking for an adrenaline rush.
