Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach 2011

Whew! What a day at the track! It was great fun checking it all out. Tomorrow will be harder because we’ll be actually working in the grandstands for half a day – actually for both Saturday and Sunday. We escaped the warm weather and cooled down a bit by going through the Lifestyle Expo in the convention center. Then we were back in the sun for the rest of the day. Watching the cars is great but noisy! Here is a great video of what it’s like from inside a car going around the track!

The Grunion Gazette has a great pull-out section Special Edition with LOTS of info. The Grunion Gazette LB Grand Prix-View is also good reading. The Grand Prix homepage has all the latest news.

If you are in the area and want to check it out, here is the schedule (although it is noted that it is subject to change). PDF version is here.

Saturday from 8:55 – 9:20 a.m. Team Drifting Demonstration will be held. Grandpa Ron and I like to watch the drifting because we met some of the drivers two years ago. The Celebrity Race is also tomorrow from 11:40-12:40.

Ticket info is here. Almost all (if not all) the special value-added tickets have been sold out except for the Paddock Club, which is operated by the Committee of 300. Once fans are inside the circuit, they can get day tickets for the Paddock Club.

It’s time to get to sleep in preparation for the rest of the weekend! What fun!
