MotoIQ RadioMotoIQ Radio: Brian Kleeman of Monsoon Motorsports and Grand Prix Weekend

by Justin Banner and Kerryann De La Cruz

It's the Grand Prix of Long Beach and that means Formula Drift kicks off round 1. I'll talk about that and we'll look into the Motegi Super Drift this Saturday. We'll also discuss open wheel, sports cars, trucks, and more that happens during the Grand Prix of Long Beach! Then we'll have Brian Kleeman of Monsoon Motorsports to talk about the challenges of World Challenge GTS in such a tight street circuit. We'll also talk about last weekend because, while it didn't end so well, it started off great for Brian and was an early showing of Nissan's power in sports cars. Got comments or questions tonight? We'll have a Facebook hashtag for you to use again so we can comment on it!


It's always an exciting time in the first two weeks of April in Long Beach, CA. It's Grand Prix Weeks!

Everything kicks off with the first round of the Formula Drift Pro Championship! We'll go into some details about the event and discuss the Motegi Super Drift Challenge that happens this weekend.

Of course, you get a second week full of racing action at the streets of Long Beach with the Tudor United SportsCar Championships and the Pirelli World Challenge.

Interestingly, the second round of the newly named Formula Off Road presented by Traxxas (used to be the Stadium Super Trucks) is held on Sunday! So it's not just cars and open wheelers that get to challenge the streets of LBC!

Finally, we'll talk to Brian Kleeman as he gets done with the Parade at the Grand Prix of Long Beach! He'll tell us about racing on the city course and the challenges in the GTS class of World Challenge. He might even tell us the secret of the speed the Nissan 370Z NISMO has!
