2020 has been a tough year for K1 Speed Canada. Initial plans to launch a second GTA location in Mississauga did not materialize. The worldwide impact of ‘the virus’ resulted in their Toronto facility closing on March 17 for nearly 5 months before re-opening in August.
With the Ontario government announcing on Friday that certain types of businesses in Toronto would go into lockdown, the writing was on the wall. K1 Speed is a non-essential business where large numbers of people gather in an indoor setting. A phone call to K1 Speed tonight confirmed that the facility will close on Sunday 22 November at 9:00 pm. Although the government mandated closure is set for four weeks, the representative on the phone hinted that K1 Speed could be closed for much longer.
A press release is expected on Monday to confirm the closure.
