The Monterey Peninsula is one of the most beautiful places in California and home to the Weathertech Laguna Seca race track, which is a great place to watch a race. If you enjoy taking pictures of race cars, access at this stunning track is perfect. You can walk all around and in some places get fairly close, unfettered views of the action. And the famous Corkscrew is just a stunning place to experience auto racing.
The GTD class was won by Alvaro Parente and Katherine Legge bringing her closer to a potential Championship this season. And the legendary Bobby Rahal, the R in Team RLL, saw his team win their second consecutive Championship race in the number 25 BMW driven by Connor De Phillippi and Alexander Sims.
This year’s Long Beach Grand Prix has been one of the most exciting I’ve witnessed: there were new cars, the Dallara DW12, a controversial 10-position penalty for every team powered by Chevy, lot’s of passing, nail-biting fuel consumption strategies, and a pile-up on the hair pin turn 11, on the last lap, after Will Power had taken the checkered flag, which prevented him from taking his victory lap. Above is the video I took from my vantage point.
An obviously exhausted, yet elated Power just gets out of his car in the middle of the turn, climbs on top of it and claims his victory. One he fought his way up from the 12th starting position to achieve.
