One Year, and 1,247,687 Laps Later…
On February 19th, 2019, many passionate and dedicated K1 Speed Canada racers and fans arrived at the Downsview location to commemorate our first-year anniversary. With over 1,247,687 million laps raced in the last 12 months, karting enthusiasts gave it their all and made it a day to remember.
Making history was Abrar Khan (former King of Speed Champion), posted the top time of the day at 23.230, which is also the 5th best lap time ever on our track.
As they say, practise makes perfect! Dawson Campbell (K1 Speed Eliminator Challenge winner) turned up at K1 Speed a few days in advance of the celebration and reset the bar with an all-time blistering new track record of 23.082. Dawson displaced former record-holder Anatoli Gourouchkine’s time of 23.149. In that same record-setting heat, Jason Wong also topped Anatoli’s time with his own personal best of 23.146.
We want to thank all of our loyal racers and look forward to another year of well over 1 million laps, with fun, friendships, tournaments, leagues, challenges and new records being set with new champs at the podium.
