Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca will become the seventh track to host the National Championship event in the Runoffs’ 50-year history, and marks the return of the Runoffs to the West Coast for the first time since the now-closed Riverside International Raceway in 1968. The SCCA National Championship Runoffs has crowned Club Racing National Champions in a winner-take-all, single race format since 1964. Through 24 separate races over three days, the 2013 edition will crown champions in 28 Runoffs-eligible classes.
The Monterey Peninsula’s love affair with world-class racing traces its beginnings to the inaugural running of the Pebble Beach Road Races in 1950. Those sports car events quickly outgrew the public roads of the Del Monte Forest and a beautiful new road racing facility was born on November 9, 1957.
More than 500 cars are now entered for the SCCA National Championship Runoffs, October 10-12, making it a thunderous nonstop three days of racing. Qualifying occurs earlier in the week, so when it comes to the weekend, visitors will see 27 different races, with each one crowning a national champion.
And for many drivers, this will be their first visit to the challenging road course, which was recently named the Number 1 race track in the United States.
Mark your calendars now to see these championship races at their inaugural visit to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
