K1 Speed Torrance

I am happy to report that the South Bay finally has a local indoor go-kart racing facility...brand new and located on the border of Gardena (i.e. within striking distance of good Japanese food). They feature the same electric karts used at other K1 Speed locations, so those familiar with them should know what to expect (quick accelerating with uncomfortable non-adjustable seats).

I dropped by for an arrive-and-drive....$15 for a single race during opening weekend...and finished third with a best lap of 33.11. I know I could have gotten into the 32's, but I started lapping people, getting stuck behind some slower movers who refused to leave me space to pass.
