About Us

Welcome to K1 Race Gear

Founder, David Danglard moved to the United States from Europe, bringing his lifelong passion for motorsports with him. In 2003, David opened one of the premier indoor karting companies in the United States, K1 SPEED, introducing a European flair to karting with the opening of his first center, K1 Speed Carlsbad. Featuring an indoor asphalt track with Italian karts and an on-line ProScore system, K1 Speed brought an entirerly new experience to the Karting world. David wanted to offer an affordable alternative to aspiring young and old drivers, and so K1 Speed was born. Today K1 Speed has 11 centers nationwide with 25 planned over the next few years.

Since David found himself unhappy with the available racing equipment for his customers, he took it upon himself to create his own line of quality racing gear. K1 Race Gear was born in 2004, employing the philosophy of only offering products that David would be proud to use himself. This includes a full line of Auto/Car Racing, Indoor/Outdoor Kart Racing Gear and Apparel for all ages, sizes and skill levels. Each product has been designed, tested and refined by drivers in various forms of motor sports, including stock cars, sports cars, and Karting. A no compromise attitude is in place - using only the highest quality materials and backed with personalized customer service, David decided to keep everything in house allowing K1 Race Gear to provide their race line at an affordable price.
 
Now nearly 9 years later, with distributors across the USA, 3 continents and in 12 countries, K1 Race Gear has grown exponentially and is quickly gaining ground in the Auto and Kart Racing Industry. In addition to new distributors K1 Race Gear has built a reputation for providing the best quality race gear along with great prices and fantastic customer service.  Feel free to look at our feedback page that includes thousands of positive feedback from our Ebay transactions.
