    Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach - April 17, 2016

    We look forward to sharing our passion of Racing with you as we tour the grounds of the Streets of Long Beach.


    We are bringing our services to "YOU" the Motorsport Fan.


    For the past ten IndyCar Seasons, we have had the privilege of taking people behind the scenes in the IndyCar Paddock.


    Your Questions - Our Answers - Not Just another Tour


    Because of our past motorsports competition background, as a driver, driver coach, team owner and corporate partner strategist. We bring a unique perspective from all sides of auto racing.

    We will share the perspective of this event from the driver's point of view, the team owner' point of view and the challenges of finding that "right partner" to make it all happen.

    Not to mention the challenges of what it really takes to be the first one to see the checkered flag.


    We love the Long Beach Grand Prix


    We were at the "Streets" for the first time in 1985 for the Grand Prix of Long Beach. Scott Pruett won in Go Karts and Dale Coyne was announced as being a gardner. Starting way back in 1975, "The Beach" as it is often referred to as, is the longest running major "street" in North American.

    It is a "happening" in the truest sense of the word. Celebrities are a staple of this event. This is truly a Motorsport Event to see and be seen at.

    The pilots of the RaceCars here on the race by the beach will fight tooth and nail not only against other competitors, but against the forces of nature and the laws of Physics.

    The Grand Prix of Long Beach often has the laws of physics on her side, and especially Sir Isaac Newton's first law of physics that states "an object in motion stays in motion" ... not exactly what you may want to hear when you are hurtling towards a cement wall at a hundred miles an hour.

    Here are some potential Highlights of your time with us:
    We adjust as needed to give you the best experience possible.

    The IndyCar Paddock:

    We will give you a complete run down. Bringing you up to speed on on each IndyCar Team and Driver.
    From those who may be struggling through the weekend, to those who have "swagger"and are not afraid to show it.

    The Technical Inspection Area

    This is where races are often won or lost even before a wheel turns on the track.
    We will run down all the latest technical changes for this weekend's event as well as explain the goings on and why "getting it right" is so crucial.

    Firestone Tire Center

    The action never stops here. We will show you just how important tires are not only for these race cars, but your own car as well.

    Maybe you have never seen a racing tire up close and personal ? Well, now is your chance.
    We will also go over the tire options and tire strategy that makes temporary street course racing so unique.

    Pit Lane:

    We will chat about and explain the restrictions that each team must deal with and some of the unique ways they have devised to be competitive with the very restrictive "rule set" that is part of IndyCar Competition.

    Victory Celebration Area:

    Back home, they will love to see a picture of you with the Grand Prix Podium in the background.
    This is always a very special place, for obvious reasons.


    But wait there is more: REALLY:

    This weekend's Racing action is not just limited to IndyCar Competition
    There is other great Racing Going On As Well - It is not to be missed.

    IMSA Tudor Sports Car Racing:

    The technical execution and high tech equipment of the IMSA series has a very international flare. This series features the Grand Touring, or Grand Turismo - GT Style of Racing Cars as well as the futuristic Prototype versions of what just possibly may become the production sports cars of tomorrow on the street.

    These same cars in June of this year will compete twice around the clock for honors at the famous Circuit de la Sarthe in Le Mans, France during the famous Le Mans 24 Hour Endurance Race.

    We will time permitting, share with you the inside information of this great racing series.


    Pirelli World Challenge:

    The Sprint Race format of the Pirelli World Challenge Series Races, with no pit-stops and the amazing standing starts are "always" a fan favorite.

    Multiple makes of car manufacturers from Acura to Cadillac will "duke it out" in this "No-Holds Barred" open competition "Street Fight" that is always full of surprises.

    We custom make all of our Trackside excursions a custom experience. We feed off of the unique opportunities, and the challenges of working with a "live show".

    Once again, time permitting, we will share with you the inside information of this great racing series.
