Acura to Sponsor 2019 Grand Prix of Long Beach

2019-03-19T11:09:40-07:00March 19th, 2019|Acura, Community, Santa Barbara Auto Group|

The Grand Prix of Long Beach is an annual institution here in southern California, and this year, it has a new sponsor. The famed Grand Prix will now be sponsored by Acura. As a proud Acura dealer, it’s something that we’re rather excited to be a part of! 

This annual event brings an IndyCar race to the streets of Long Beach every April. For one spring weekend each year, the city streets turn into a racetrack, as world-class drivers compete for first in one of the most important events on today’s racing circuit.

If you’re into racing or want to experience some heart-pounding fun, this year’s Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach will be the perfect event for you. It’s a weekend of music, family-friendly events and, most importantly, racing.

It’s more than performance when it’s Acura

Acura’s parent company, Honda, has been having some great success on the track recently. When it comes to the Grand Prix of Long Beach, Honda and Acura are setting the standards.

Acura and Honda have had great success with their racing division. In the past 10 years of the Grand Prix, six of the winning drivers have been driving Honda-powered vehicles. Last year at Long Beach, the Acura ARX-05 driven by Juan Pablo Montoya set the first pole for this new vehicle. Acura has helped world-class drivers take the lead, and given us a thrill in the process.

Experience all that the Grand Prix of Long Beach has to offer

Here at Acura of Santa Barbara, we’re very excited to see Acura sponsoring this event just outside of Los Angeles. We can’t wait to watch this premier racing event this spring, and we hope to see the Honda and Acura powered drivers take another top spot.

This Grand Prix of Long Beach is one of the top street races in the nation, and we’re excited to announce that it will now be sponsored by Acura. As a Southern California Acura dealer, we’re looking forward to seeing our brand take on this event. The Grand Prix of Long Beach takes place April 12-14, 2019.
