After many thoughtful conversations with the City of Manhattan Beach and our title sponsor Chevron, the MBGP race committee has made the difficult decision to again postpone the 59th Chevron Manhattan Beach Grand Prix until July 2022. While the current and near future loosening of Covid restrictions might allow competitors to race, the continued restrictions on spectators etc. will likely eliminate the Community aspects of the event, including the Vendor area, the Kid’s Race and the Chevron Kids Zone, with a significant reduction in the number of spectators.
Without these elements and the current reluctance of additional sponsorships from the community it was decided that we would not hold a greatly reduced event and would concentrate our efforts to hold a full MBGP in 2022.
I know many of you, especially racers, were looking forward to this year’s MBGP as much as we were. Hopefully you will understand and come back in 2022!
