sets K1 Speed apart from the competition though is their use
of fully electric karts, making K1 Speed the eco-friendly choice
for indoor entertainment. "Our European race karts perform solely
on electricity, eliminating the toxic emissions produced by
gas-powered karts," says Susan Graver, Co-owner and Marketing
Director for K1 Speed. This commitment to low-impact technologies
goes beyond the karts though; all of their indoor racetracks
are equipped with energy efficient lighting and corporate headquarters
is working to implement more sustainable business practices.
Torrance is located 15 minutes from Beverly Hills and five minutes
from the beach cities of Los Angeles. The location is within
