Indoor kart racing operator K1 Speed has announced K1 Circuit, a new outdoor karting center in Irvine, California.

Three years in the making and designed by pro racing driver Rocky Moran, Jr., the 1.1-mile configurable outdoor track will offer banked turns and elevation changes within the foothills of Southern California.

The main building will be a 14,000-sq. ft., two-story structure that features a K1 Race Gear store, meeting spaces and a Paddock Lounge café with a deck overlooking the track. Additional structures will serve as garages and storage spaces, while a scoring tower will be installed to display the current running order on track.

The karts utilized on the track will also differ from those found at K1 Speed. With a longer distance and more opportunity for safe run-off territories, an all-new electric pro-kart will propel drivers to over 75 mph.

K1 Speed is the United States’ largest indoor kart racing operator with over 30 centers across the nation. K1 Speed also recently introduced an international franchise program, which has enjoyed success in South Korea and Mexico. New facilities in Canada, Panama, China and the United Arab Emirates currently under construction.

K1 Speed will announce more information about K1 Circuit at a later date.
