VM Back Issue Spotlight: Long Beach Grand Prix history

By

As Vintage Motorsport Magazine continues our 50% off back issue sale, we are showcasing a few prime examples of the issues available. Today’s choice is the combination of the May/June and July/August 2014 issues. These issues feature a wonderful two-part history of the Long Beach Grand Prix from award-winning historian Janos Wimpffen.

This weekend would have been the 46th iteration of “USA’s Monaco Grand Prix” and we found it a fitting time to look back, reflect, and then look forward to next year when the streets are filled with race cars again.

The story begins in 1973 with travel agency owner and Long Beach resident Chris Pook, and carries us through over 40 years of history on the streets of Long Beach.
