No tickets here

So where can you go to get the thrill of racing, without risking a really expensive ticket or worse?

K-1 Speed has the answer. K-1 offers electric indoor kart racing at nine locations in California, including one in Ontario, about 2 hours from post.

From the K-1 web site: “An Arrive & Drive race consists of a 14-lap battle against the clock with up to 11 other drivers on the track. Rather than race for position, which rewards luck and blocking skill as much as it does pure driving talent, time trial races demand consistency, skill, speed, and strategy. Setting a fast lap time often involves navigating around slower drivers and creating a window for yourself on track so that you can set a fast lap time unimpeded.

If you get caught up in a neck-and-neck battle, don’t be surprised if the back-and-forth action hurts your lap times! Just like in Formula One, the key to setting a fast lap time is often getting as far away from other drivers as possible.”

In order to race, children must be at least four feet tall. Adults must be at least 4’10”.
