Mayor Bob Foster will kick off a special public event by waving a green flag to start the “Grand Prix-View,” and let people access the track at Pine Avenue and Seaside Way, at 2 pm.
For the first time since the race began here in 1975, the community is allowed to join the drivers as they themselves get a more intimate understanding of the course. People can travel at their own pace while experiencing up close the tire tracks, sights and all 11 turns of one of the most famous street courses in the world. No racecars will be involved.
On Thursday, it's the people’s track. This ‘Grand Prix-View’ event is yet another great experience for residents and workers, and helps us showcase our exciting and beautiful Downtown.
A second entrance point for the public to access the track is at Seaside Way and Linden Avenue.
The City of Long Beach is coordinating the “Grand Prix-View” with the Grand Prix Association of Long Beach. The event will promote a healthy, active lifestyle, and will travel in the same direction as the 2-mile race. Parking is available at The Pike Parking Structure, 65 S. Cedar Ave.
