The race weekend will take place Sept. 24-26 and feature the season finale of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES season, which is expected to decide the 2021 series championship and feature celebrated drivers such as four-time Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves, back-to-back and defending Long Beach winner Alexander Rossi, six-time series champion Scott Dixon and hard-charging young stars such as Patricio O’Ward, Colton Herta and Alex Palou battling wheel-to-wheel on the famed 1.97-mile, 11-turn circuit through downtown Long Beach.
In addition, the Sat., Sept. 25 featured event will be the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship with its world-class Prototype and GT sports cars wheeled by the likes of Sebring 12 Hours winners Tristan Vautier and Loic Duval, Daytona 24 Hours winners Ricky Taylor and Filipe Albuquerque and Redondo Beach’s Bill Auberlen, the winningest driver in IMSA history.
Fans will also see two nights of the Super Drift Challenge, two races from Robby Gordon’s SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks and, new for 2021, a Saturday/Sunday doubleheader of the Historic Formula Atlantic Challenge.
“We are excited to welcome our fans back in September,” said Jim Michaelian, president and CEO of the Grand Prix Association of Long Beach. “We can’t wait to bring the excitement back to the streets of Long Beach with full fan participation. With five incredible races – including the INDYCAR season finale – and a host of fun off-track activities, the Acura Grand Prix’s entertainment value is second to none.”
Off the track, the event’s menu of family entertainment will also include the Lifestyle Expo featuring a large Family Fun Zone with racing simulators, kids’ racing cars, computer games and action sports. Add to that driver autograph sessions, special events and exhibits highlighting the Grand Prix’s history, the popular Food Truck Experience and Sunday’s Mothers Exotic Car Paddock, it’s a weekend that will be packed full of activity with more activities to be announced in the coming weeks.
While fans will experience all of the Acura Grand Prix excitement as before, the Grand Prix Association will strictly follow health and safety guidelines set by state, county and local health officials. More details on this will be announced in the coming months.
