The need for speed is real at San Diego’s Miramar Speed Circuit, which has go-kart racing, laser tag, and a games arena. The three areas are especially popular with groups and often hosts team building events, private parties, and celebrations. Racers receive helmets and head socks and then take to the tracks, which were designed by professional racers.
The 1/4 mile raceway has ideal conditions for reaching speeds of up to 40 miles per hour, and includes two straightways and four tight turns. The asphalt track allows for wheels to optimally grasp the ground so that sliding and brake use is at a minimum. Barriers and borders ensure the safety of all drivers.
Lap times are recorded electronically in each car, so racers have the chance to compare speeds in personalized reports after each race. The speed circuit is considered to be one of the finest indoor go-kart raceways in the country.
The Miramar Speed Circuit is located in central San Diego off of Miramar Road, between I-15 and 805. Go-kart racing costs $19.95 for ten minutes on the track, and laser tag is $9 per game. Though not required, it is recommended to make reservations in advance (especially for groups.)
