Long Beach Grand Prix Reviews
Apr 15, 2007
This was an interesting "attraction" as I am not a car fan at all. But, I figure, it is one of those things that one should check out at least once and never have to do again. It was surprisingly enjoyable. Perhaps, it helped that I was at someone's condo high rise and observed the race from above and got to see a lot of the curves and hair pin turns. Guests at the condo who also bought tickets to roam the grounds said that the bathrooms down there were nasty so that is one other thing to think about when buying tickets to go to the main grounds (I think the tickets ranged from $40-75). Ashley Judd's husband, Dario Franchitti, drove one of the Lemans cars, and the race was pretty impressive -- too bad he lost. The celebrity race was interesting: Martina Navratilova came in second, George Lucas crashed, Hugh Heffner and his two girlfriends were grand marshalls...
