This past weekend, we had the incredible opportunity to host guests at the Detroit Grand Prix. With representatives from Trace3, Guidepoint, Connection, and Judy Security, the event brought together tech experts and channel professionals for an exhilarating experience.

Our weekend kicked off with a VIP meet and greet with none other than Romain Grosjean at the Juncos Hollinger Racing Hospitality suite. Romain’s passion and dedication to the sport were palpable, setting the tone for the excitement to come. 

Guests were also treated to an exclusive garage tour with the Juncos Hollinger Racing team. Witnessing the meticulous preparation and teamwork that goes into readying a car for the track was nothing short of awe-inspiring. Our tech-savvy guests appreciated the precision and innovation that parallels their own industries.

The first day concluded with a team dinner, including guest Romain Grosjean. He shared insights and stories from his remarkable journey in the racing world, making for an engaging and memorable evening.

Day two began with a presentation about DNSFilter during breakfast. It was a fantastic opportunity to draw parallels between cybersecurity and the racing world.

The race itself was nothing short of thrilling, filled with high-speed chases and strategic maneuvers. Romain Grosjean was performing spectacularly after starting P15 and demonstrating his skill and tenacity.

It was a rainy day in Motor City, and ultimately Grosjean and Juncos Hollinger chose not to switch to wet tires during a brief rainfall, positioning himself in fourth place by the lap 41 restart. Turn 3, notorious for causing numerous pile ups throughout the weekend, saw another incident when Christian Lundgaard's No. 45 spun and collided with Grosjean’s No. 77, sending him to the back of the field. Despite this setback, Grosjean crossed the finish line in 23rd place and recorded the second-fastest lap of the race.

As with any high-stakes competition, unpredictability is part of the game. Romain exhibited the true spirit of perseverance and determination in finishing the race. Romain didn’t give up; he continued on. His resilience was a testament to his character and a reminder that the phoenix continues to rise from the ashes.
