Miramar Speed Circuit Indoor Cart Racing
Miramar Speed Circuit has a 1/4 mile technical road course. This is a asphalt racetrack, which allows the tires to grip the track and prevent sliding. The karts, which can travel up to 40 miles per hour, have Honda 6.5BHP engines. The place offers a lunch special from Monday to Friday from 11:30a-2p. You can be an annual member for $60. Every Monday-Friday 11a-2p, a free race and a free deli sandwich and drink is given to all drivers.
Place is a lot of fun. Price is very resonable if you get a membership. There is almost no situation where haveing a seatbelt would be benificial to a cart like this. loved the time there. Everyone should go.
My 7 year old did a junior racing school and then did 2 laps with his dad. On the 2nd lap with his dad he slammed into the wall at 25mph and the barrier came over the car and fell on him. He seemed OK but when he got home I looked him over and he had bruising on his chest, shoulder, right temple & right arm. I asked my husband how he got that banged up with a seatbelt and his response was "uh, they don't have seatbelts" WHAT? what kind of place has junior karts (for 7 year olds!) and no seatbelts! I never would have let him race and don't think anyone should without a belt. The trauma docs were appalled as well and said he could have done some serious damage. 4 hrs in observation later we're home but the potential danger is NOT worth the 'fun'.
The whole facility just seemed so dark and depressing to me. They really need to change their paint colors. The Karts seemed okay for gas, they claim on the website they reach speeds of 40 MPH that's okay but another reason I prefer electric karts. Electric karts have better torque, so faster acceleration and reach speed of 45+mph. By far the best electric track I have been to is Pole Position Raceway. The building is nice and bright and the staff is amazing.
The premise is neat but way tooo expensive! Its near $30 for a 10 minute race! I dont see why its so expensive! Also they wouldnt take a coupon because one of the kids in our group had been there before! It was in the fine print but c'mon!
The seats in the cart gave me some pretty narly bruises in my back which a freind later told me is normal..... ok?
Two of the kids in my group said the carts they were in were really slow compared to all of the others and the attendant on the track all but ignored him. Maybe it was him but they could at least they could have tested the cart or even loked at it.
Absolute brilliance. Friendly and helpful staff. Amazing facility, FAST Gas powered Cars, technical track (Designed by Lotus Group they tell me). The main advantage to this place is the Gas Karts. Electric it just not as fun, with Gas Karts you're in charge, no drivers aids or seatbelts or anything. They're basically just de-tuned race Karts. I can't wait to go back, I even bought a memership (great value!). Great place for a birthday party or team building event. Andy gave me a tour and the private rooms look amazing.
Also, check out they're new Friday night promotion!
Racing the karts at Miramar was one of the highlights of our 6-day trip to San Diego. Our 16-year-old son rated it as THE highlight, and our 18-year-old daughter also loved it. (OK, we did too!) We went over lunch on a weekday when you get a sandwich and drink with each race. We only waited for a short time before we got into a race. I did feel bad for the other 4 competitors (they race 8 at a time), as they appeared to be pros at this, and I'm afraid that, as beginners, we slowed them down. It wasn't cheap; $95 for the four of us, including the required head gear to wear under the helmets, and shoe rental and purchase of socks(3 of us had worn open-toed shoes, which are not allowed). Would recommend for anyone with older kids. Was about a 20-minute drive from downtown San Diego so a rental car is a must if you are staying downtown.
The place is fun, and the racing is what it is all about. I have been going there off and on for nearly a year and really love the place.
Unfortunately though, thier General Manager has left the company and things just are not the same since. I dont know why, but the atosmosphere was much more fluid and positive when he was there. Otherwise, the staff is still good and the karts have not changed. So thanks for that.
Have fun. It is worth going at least once.
Finally a place that has real racing. The karts are great and are the closest thing to pro racing in San Diego. GAS powered and fast. I love the sound of the motors and the feel of the steering. Amazing. And if you ask the staff for driving tips, they will make you even faster.
Recently the general manager there helped me with some great instruction and introduced me to some of his track staff. They now their stuff and are very willing to help you improve. You have to try it to understand. You don't know what your missing. See ya there. BTW: Checkout the lunch special!!!!
