Long Beach is one of the least forgiving tracks in this season. If you loose your car you will be forced to go into the pits for repair. There are only two places on the whole track where you can go off and still have a car to race with. Expect several drivers to have an extra stop to make.
My strategy for the race is to keep out of trouble.

This is the only race of the season that will have no time acceleration at all, 1 hour and 40 minutes just like the real one in April.
