Registration open, 30 spots. Get em while they are Hot!
These tracks typically rent out for $1500.00 an hour. This is an evolve backed promotion and a great opportunity to track sk8 your DIY or production board for 25.00. Joe also has a group ride event after the race is finished. I think there may be a few spots still open. Pics by @Alphamail
Just recent event Justin Morgan broke his hand and may not be competing this Saturday at the k-1 event in Carlsbad California. So it appears I have an open ride with a paid spot available for the K1 Speed race. If you are interested let me know it’s April 13th this weekend. You don’t need to be a world champion or even have any race experience come ride at your own level. Will have the final word from Justin on his hand Friday. This is what you’ll be riding.
Would like to announce Alyssa Torres will be the Alternate for Saturday’s race. Thanks Alyssa and welcome to team SRB.
Happy race day 7:45am is sign in. hot laps start at 8
Can’t wait to see footage from the race

Awesome time at the race! I had a third fastest lap time of the day but I landed in last place on the final race. Took a pretty good spill at the beginning because someone doesnt know how to use their brakes coming up behind me on the first turn. Racing etiquette is lacking in the sport but its not a big deal and im not sour about it.
I wonder what my time was. All I know is moe got the fastest at 35. I think I heard them announce that I got 38/39 ish but I was also groggy with just 1-2 hours of sleep so I don’t remember much lol. I wish they published the official times somewhere.
I fully expect Justin Yee to make a full blown video about the whole event, but he posted a sneak peek here:
Mo got a 33.4, another guy got a 35.9 and I got 36.2. I was also working on two or three hours of sleep from the night before, lol.
Madness. I can’t believe you guys can handle turns at high speeds like that. Comes with experience I guess. Even with bindings and pneumatics I can’t get over the fear of sliding out. But I think I did good making it to top 10 for a first timer.
An all out drag race to the first turn is probably not the best way to rig a start. Staggered like Grand Prix or rolling start may be a better option to sort the chaos going into the first turn. Also give racing room and holding your line is important. There is always the right of way for the leading vehicle, chopping a turn entry to move beside when the turn exit can’t be sustained without contact is always the responsibility of the person doing the passing. It’s up to the person being passed to hold his line as well. Passing on someones heel side involves risk. You can’t avoid what you can’t see.
I think our group, the first five during the semi final, habdled the first turn really well. I was third after that turn and the people behind me passed me very cleanly on the next couple of turns, though that may just be the result of my fear-of-sliding-out induced wide ass turning leaving openings for the others to take advantage of.
If you don’t slide out pushing hard on a turn atleast a few times, you will never know how far you can really push it before you lose traction. Well as far as the k1 speed track is concerned. I would never lean or push as hard as i did on nornal roads.
Agreed. The 30 mins warm up session really helped me gauge how far I can push myself. I’m normally the type to let go of the throttle and coast my way into turns like how I would when driving, but I soon realized that I needed to still supply current and somewhat maintain my speed during turns if I’m going to keep up with everyone.
Same. One bad rubble patch and I’m done for.
Oh hey that’s me. Which means I may have crashed into you at some point. Sorry!
