In 2019, Daniel Demaras qualified for the inaugural K1 Speed World Championships. Competing against some of the world’s best electric kart racers, Daniel finished on the podium. Daniel punched his ticked to California again when he qualified for the 2020 K1 Speed World Championships, aiming for the top step of the podium, The Demaras family had their flights booked for California in March 2020. Then ‘the virus’ hit and everything stopped.

This week, communication from K1 Speed arrived, confirming that the organization is still planning on running the event as soon as international travel restrictions are lifted.

Hello Racer,

First off, we have not forgotten about you and we apologize for the silence on our end regarding the E-World Championship. The pandemic has thrown K1 Speed some unique challenges when it has come to planning this major event. Rest assured, anyone who qualified for the World Championship in the years prior, (from 2019 on) will be invited when we host our next event.

The biggest reason for the delay is that this is an international competition – not just national. While the United States appears to be rounding the corner of this pandemic, unfortunately, the same cannot be said for some of our fellow countries that take part in the championship. As a result, there are still many restrictions when it comes to international travel. Until it’s safe for everyone to travel to the event – including our international competitors – the E-World Championship dates are pending.

Thank you for your understanding. And again, you have not lost your place for a chance at winning some big bucks. We just need to be a patient for a little while longer. If you have any questions, definitely feel free to reach out to me at any time.
