Those that have that need for speed will love this little piece of indoor racing heaven. K1 Racing has several Southern California locations, but the Torrance location is the closest to the Los Angeles area.
K1 Racing offers an Arrive & Drive program, which means (if the facility is open) you can show up and drive on of the high-performance, zero emissions cars. The combination of the speed of the vehicles coupled with the high-grip track produces G-forces that emulate driving a real formula race car. K1 regularly has visits from real race car drivers in the off-season, to let loose. Those that like to track their progress in the name of competition can measure their times against over a million other competitors that have raced at K1.
After circling the track a few times for your best time, chill out on one of K1′s leather couches to watch the other races. The speed and adrenaline that you get from racing go-karts indoors is addicting, and after a few laps, you’ll be hooked.
Drive to the K1 Racing track in a car with expert performance and handling like a 2013 GL350 BlueTEC SUV from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. With plenty of room for your friends, it’s the perfect ride to take before the ride.
