Grand Prix of Long Beach is Almost Here!

The Grand Prix of Long Beach is almost here for 2018.  Next week, April 13-15 the streets of Long Beach California come alive with the best the world of motorsports has to offer.  This year the World Challenge Championship team from right here in SoCal,  TruSpeed Autosport will return to try and reclaim the title.

While the entire weekend of the Grand Prix of Long Beach will be filled with racing excitement, there are also other entertainment venues, dining and shopping, including the Lifestyle Expo where you can get your personal race style.  Some teams like TruSpeed have online shops so you can arrive in style.

The 2017 race was dubbed “Road by the Shore”, and we think this year will be even better.  Six great races highlight the weekend filled with fun, food, music and racing!  Here is the complete schedule and we even have the official commercial.

You can also buy tickets here.
