Photos Essay: Long Beach Grand Prix Weekend

StopTech CEO Dino Crescentini had an amazing race in Long Beach this weekend that landed him on top of the SCCA 2010 GT Driver Championship. The race was one of many held on the streets of Long Beach this weekend as part of the 2010 Grand Prix of Long Beach.  Here are some behind the scenes shots courtesy of Danger Dave...

The Indy Pace Cars ran with StopTech brakes.  So did the Indy rescue vehichles.  These guys have to thread the racecourse at near race speeds.

You can't see the StopTech brakes on this car.  The banners help.

Dino has a great race with all the right moves.

Pretty sweet helmet, dude!
