Manhattan Beach Grand Prix

I went down to the race this year and it was fun. I took some pictures and video. The crowd was pretty good but for some reason it seemed the races lacked a little grit and fire as compared to years past.

Nice. Thanks for posting. It took me awhile to figure out that the guys who I thought were off the front were actually being lapped. For off the front, they looked so casual, up on the hoods, lol.

The lack of grit and fire was because of the horrific crash in the cat 4's last year. There was also big crash in the 3's and the 35+.

I raced the last 3 years and I'm glad it was a little more calm than the previous years.
