Vroom! Vroom!

Unless you are going to be driving an open-wheel race car, do not expect to be going very fast in downtown Long Beach this weekend.

The city is welcoming the 40th Grand Prix of Long Beach, a signature three-day event for the city that attracts more than 170,000 people a year to its scenic waterfront.

The two-mile street course winds through palm-lined Shoreline Drive, swooping past landmarks like the Pike, the Long Beach Convention Center and the aquarium.

The Grand Prix, dubbed by some the roar on the shore, is also expected to generate a significant amount of noise as the open-wheel IndyCars screech through hairpin turns around the Aquarium of the Pacific and rev up past the harbor.

The Los Angeles Sports Council is a non-profit civic organization whose primary purpose is to promote economic development through sports in the Los Angeles/Orange County area.

On behalf of the community, the Sports Council bids against other cities for the right to host major sporting events, often staging or helping to stage events after successful bids.

Founded in 1988, the Sports Council's efforts represent more than $1 billion in overall economic impact for the region and range from NCAA Championships to the Super Bowl, and from the U.S Olympic Trials to the World Cup.

The Council also works in support of each of the area's established sports teams and facilities.
