Professional racecar drivers have long been gathering in teahouses and bowling alleys to devise an eco-friendly manner of racing. Today’s deal reconciles this dilemma: for $44, you get four Arrive & Drive races (up to an $80 value) and a pair of annual race licenses for two people (a $12 value) at K1 Speed. This Groupon is good at all four of K1 Speed's LA-area locations.
Top-of-the-line European-designed electric go-karts and miles of extra-fast fastcrete concrete and asphalt allow racers to feed an inner speed demon its favorite meal—a bowlful of racing topped with fresh tire tracks and paired with a tall glass of ice-cold rubber smell. Housing some of the largest indoor go-kart racing in the state, K1 Speed delivers high speeds without repugnant oil stains with a distinctly fuel-y odor. Going electric is cleaner, safer, and makes a fearless lead foot seem the slightest bit more sophisticated. Be sure to peruse K1's rules and safety information before heading to the track.
K1 Speed uses a ProScore system to gauge your skills against your aggressive other half, friends, or other racers in the neighborhood. Indoor go-karting offers all the enlightenment of real-life racing with the charm of low-emissions technology and the safety of state-required safety measures. K1 Speed also hosts a number of private events and parties, so check online for closures ahead of time to ensure a smooth racing experience.
The Anaheim and Ontario locations both now feature Junior Karts; you must be at least four feet tall to drive.

- I checked out the Irvine location recently and was thrilled to see that the integrity of the company continued at other locations. Staff was amazing, memorabilia was fun to look at, and the location was clean and inviting. – socalracer, Citysearch
- Very cool experience. I was a little scared at first but after a few laps got the hang of it. You are very safe with seat belt helmet and the carts are very safe too. Great event for groups. – Rabold10, Citysearch
