BBi Autosport & Motegi Racing Long Beach Grand Prix Launch Event
Last weeks event was very well received by all of those in attendance. Many media members and VIP guests as well as drivers attended the event and brought some new fresh faces in the automotive industry to come see the shop and mingle with other industry members. Motegi and BBi shop owners gave a formal introduction to the new racing wheel and their involvement in many national racing series and events. There were about 150 guests that attended the event including AutoWeek, RACER and SportsCar Magazine, ESPN, Source Interlink journalists, ALMS Porsche factory driver Patrick Long, American race car driver and TV host Tommy Kendall, Indy Car driver Graham Rahal, Indy driver Bryan Herta and Formula Drift driver Jhonnattan Castro.
The event was set to end at 10PM but lasted until the tear down began at 11:30PM. Guests conversed about the upcoming Long Beach event, new drivers and were excited to hear about RECARO’s presence at this years GP along with a continued sponsorship for the rest of the Pirelli World Challenge races. It sounds like many of the guests from this event will be on the look out and stopping by at one of the RECARO activation centers.
