K1 Speed will be in Long Beach this weekend (April 10-11) for the first round of the 2009 Formula D drift series and next weekend (April 16-19) for the Long Beach Grand Prix. If you are in the area or you are planning on attending these events, feel free to stop by our booth to say hello and pick up some discount coupons! Formula D is the premier drift series in the United States, and features renowned drivers such as Tanner Foust, Rhys Millen, and Samuel Hubinette. The excitement of watching the latest sports cars race around the circuit sideways inches away from the wall is something you have to see in person!
Next weekend, we’ll be back in Long Beach for the 35th annual Grand Prix. The top Indy drivers will be competing, including Danica Patrick and Marco Andretti, and will be fighting for position around the tight street circuit at speeds approaching 160mph or more! The Long Beach Grand Prix has a long and storied history, and some of the top drivers in the world, including Sebastien Bourdais, Juan Pablo Montoya, Paul Tracy and Alex Zanardi have all won here. You don’t want to miss it!
