Photo Gallery:  Manhattan Beach Grand Prix

The 52 Annual Manhattan Beach Grand Prix has been a summer staple in SoCal for over half a century. This year the MBGP was a NCC race for both the Pro Men and Women’s categories, which offered a nice prize list and the incentive to race hard for a chance to win the cash.

Below are some photo highlights taken from the Manhattan Beach Grand Prix as the racers took on the double hairpin course.
