The inaugural Beverly Hills Porsche La Grange Grand Prix was a welcome addition to the Southern California racing calendar!
The Beverly Hills Porsche La Grange Grand Prix was held at the Porsche Experience Center Los Angeles, which features a fun Porsche test track with a smooth pavement that is designed for speed.
The course featured multiple sweeping turns, including two fast 180s, and a short, punchy climb. On the last lap, racers exited the second 180-degree turn to cross the finish line for the win in front of the Porsche Experience Center museum, which featured a beautiful collection Porsche racing cars to view.
The LaGrange Grand Prix offered a $13,600 prize purse, free races for Juniors and equal payouts, along with a nice Team area where Teams could hang out.
The racing was exciting and the track made it spectator friendly where friends and family could watch from the PEC pit lane and the elevated PEC viewing platform on the south side of the course.
Christian Gorm Albrechtsen (SoCalCycling.com Team) won the Pro Men’s race and Katie Mardayat (Serious Cycling) won the Pro Women’s race.
Kudos to the Velo Club La Grange for putting on a great event! We look forward to future editions of the Beverly Hills Porsche La Grange Grand Prix!
