K1 Canadian Championship

Are you the fastest racer on the track? Now is your time to prove it. We’re looking to crown our 2023 Canadian karting champion. Qualification for the K1 Speed 2023 Canadian Championship begins now!

The Canadian Championship is a one-day tournament held annually. The winner of the tournament will move on to represent Canada in the K1 Speed World Championship go-karting race.  The tournament will follow our K1NG of Speed tournament format to ensure an equal playing field for all participants.


The top 16 racers with the highest K1RS points by the end of the year will be invited to compete in the K1 Speed Canadian Championship tournament. The winner will be crowned the Canadian Champion and move on to the World Championship race. Points are collected from January 1st – December 31st. Racers must collect a minimum of 4,000 K1RS points to qualify for the championship tournament.


How do you collect K1RS points?


Show up and race! Every new racer starts with 1,200 points. You earn 2 points for racing in a race, and 2 points for every racer that you beat in that race. In addition, you will earn 2 bonus points if you have the single best lap time, and 2 bonus points for having the best average lap time. The more you race and the more skilled you are at go-kart racing, the more points you will earn.




The K1 Speed Canadian Champion will win a grand prize for $3,000, along with some serious karting bragging rights.


2nd Place: $1,500

3rd Place: $500
