Leo Parente heads to the 2011 Long Beach Grand Prix to check out the behind the scenes of IndyCar, ALMS, and World Challenge. While on location, Leo speaks to Doug Fehan from Corvette Racing, Kevin Kalkhoven from KV Racing / Lotus, and John Potter from Magnus Racing. What makes the Long Beach Circuit so challenging? Leo finds out.
Merging F1, IndyCar, Formula Drift. Vs Keeping Racing Real.
What happens when Leo Parente goes off the deep-end after getting into one
too many fights with race organizers? He decides to tell them what he
really thinks: Merge Formula 1, IndyCar, and Formula D. Why? Because
racing has turned from a technology testbed with drivers who have no fear
into just a show for the general public, all in the name of making more $$.
Leo has a problem with that, and that's this week's installment of

2012 Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach
Long Beach, CA. (Apr. 15). After starting in eighth position, Team Falken
Tire finished 6th in the GT class today in the Tequila Patron American Le
Mans Series at Long Beach, a home track for the Fontana based team. The
team entered the weekend hoping for a second straight street course win on
the 1.968 mile track, with the previous win being on the streets of
Baltimore last season. With their unbeatable rain tire set up, the team
conquered the charts in the rain-filled practice session and qualifying
session on Friday. However, the weather conditions resulted in the
qualifying session results to be abandoned, forcing the team to give up the
pole position and start the race based on their position in the
championship point standings.
