Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca Goes Zoom-Zoom
On any given weekend, there are more Mazdas on the road-race tracks of America than any other brand of vehicle. At the track, you’ll see MX-5 Miata, RX-8, MAZDA3, MAZDA6, RX-7 and other vintage Mazda models competing, because every Mazda has the soul of a Sports Car.
In fact, the largest road-racing class in the U.S. is the SCCA’s Spec Miata class, with more than 2,500 first- and second-generation Miatas tearing up America’s race tracks, making it the most-raced production car in the world.
Mazda’s involvement in motorsports extends to its relationship with Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, one of the world’s premier road-racing circuits, the Skip Barber Schools for driving and racing and the Mazda Road to Indy. Mazda currently competes in over a dozen professional series ranging from the American Le Mans Series to the SCCA Pro Racing Playboy Mazda MX-5 Cup.
Mazda considers Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca its spiritual home and every Mazda sold in the U.S. undergoes development work at the race track. Thanks to Mazda’s support, the track has been able to make substantial improvements like the premier suites in pit lane and garages.
