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.
