The premise behind the creation of K1 Speed was to offer enthusiasts and amateurs alike an authentic and genuine racing experience in a safe, comfortable, accessible and perhaps most importantly, unique environment. Utilizing advanced European electric karts and indoor asphalt tracks, K1 Speed quickly developed a reputation as being fun and exciting, and our growth has been continuous since we first opened our doors. In addition to our Arrive and Drive racing option, which allows individuals to visit our indoor karting centers anytime and experience the thrill of racing, we also offer racing leagues and a variety of packages for corporate events and group parties, which have proven quite popular. To meet the needs of customers and kart racing enthusiasts who demand more, we also have a Pro Shop - K1 Race Gear - which carries everything that a karter might need to compete at the track. At K1 Speed, our goal is to be synonymous with karting, and we think that we are on our way!

We visit Redmond, WA location multiple times. This is our first visit to Santa Clara location. The staff is rude, they couldn't look up our accounts from Redmond. They made us create new accounts. Once we register as new , they made us wait 1 HR and told that only one more race left, so we could only go for... More

First time racing here at K1 speed, and definitely returning! The track was bigger than other places I went to before. Friendly atmosphere. Most importantly there's no exhaust/ gas smell 😌

We've had good experiences when we've visited, however it would be nice for them to add go karts suitable for younger guests. The wait times vary, somedays there is no wait and others have an hour wait for a guest to race.

What I like about this place? A: All Go-Karts are electric. Race track marshal is able to prevent accidents by remote disabling racers when there is an issue on the track. Nice!!! We came here as part of our "team building activity" and you know how those things are...let me put this way, I was the only one there not... More

Celebrated my sons 16th birthday with family and teen boys. Everyone had a blast!!! Booked one of their race packages and it did not disappoint. I wish I could have remembered names but the ladies at the front counter and the gentleman inside the track area that gave the instructions and race rules were wonderful. They were very pleasant and... More

This was a lot of fun. You do need to be 48", so not all kids can race. The wait can be pretty long because there are a limited number of racers allowed in the track for each race. A bit pricey, but fun for an occasional party.

The carts were very fun to race around but I was only able to do a couple of races started to get dizzy. Oh well age will prevail. LOL!! Try it you will love the scaled down racing!

I had a go-cart on the family farm when I was a kid. This place is great. The track is indoor. Carts are electric. Acceleration is great. The carts are well maintained.
