We’re one week away from starting construction on the world-famous Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach racetrack! And we’re looking forward to hosting YOU at the biggest – and best – Grand Prix ever! Seats and hospitality clubs are filling up fast, so be sure to get your ticket order in early.
New this year is the Motegi Racing Super Drift Challenge, an invitational Formula DRIFT event that will take place under the lights at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. Free with your race admission, the Super Drift Challenge is expected to feature the top drivers and cars competing in the Formula DRIFT series. And it will be the first time we’ve raced at night in the 39-year history of the Grand Prix!
As always, we’ll feature a variety of entertaining activities for the entire family. On-track, we’ll have the IZOD IndyCar Series®, with great drivers such as three-time series champ Dario Franchitti; defending series champion Ryan Hunter-Reay; Long Beach winners Helio Castroneves and Will Power, along with Scott Dixon, Marco Andretti and Graham Rahal. On Saturday, the finest sports cars in North America will take center stage in the Tequila Patrón American Le Mans Series along with the fan-favorite Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race, in which film, television and sports stars will take on pro drivers in all-new, race-prepared Scion FR-S. On Sunday, in addition to the Indy cars, we’ll have the Firestone Indy Lights and Pirelli World Challenge.
Off the track, you’ll be able to enjoy free Friday and Saturday night Tecate Light concerts and the Lifestyle Expo with an expanded Family Fun Zone featuring racing simulators, kids’ racing cars, computer games and action sports. Also in the Expo will be the ever-growing Green Power Prix-View, featuring the latest in environmentally conscious products for the car and home. Add to that multiple driver autograph sessions, a Go-Kart track for adult racers, the popular Food Truck Experience, Sunday’s Mothers Exotic Car Paddock, and it’s a weekend packed full of activity.
We’ll also have a few more exciting announcements in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
