TOYOTA GRAND PRIX OF LONG BEACH 2008
Mood:  on fire
Topic: auto racing

 

Yesterday I went to the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. When I first arrived during the Champ Car Qualifying (Session 1) I went under the underpass of the Performing Arts Center which made a huge echo chamber and man it was LOUD! I didn't realize until I had to move huge barricades to get out of there that it had been OFF LIMITS but I had been allowed to go there without hassle from anybody. I started off the events by having a few Heineken beers at the Hyatt. The weather was great and I was having a good time. I also checked out the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Qualifying from the bar and pool area of the hotel. Then, from a seat at the starting/finish line I was able to watch the American Le Mans Series Qualifying which was a very good race. Then it was back to the hotel for more beer, at which time the Formula Drift/Super Lap Practice was happening. After that I went to Bubba Gumps and saw Uncle Joe broadcasting live for KLOS. If you want to check out the action ESPN will be showing the CHAMP CAR ATLANTIC EVENTS today April 20, 2008, and then the 34th Annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach Champ Car Race on Sunday will be picked up by ABC so check your local listings.
