The tradition of memorable sports car racing will continue at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in 2014 with the addition of America’s all-new premier sports car racing series: The TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.
This entirely new series created by the merger between the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series and the American Le Mans Series retains the very popular format of races within a race, providing plenty of on-track action and constant passing.
Now’s the time to race toward the VIP Flagroom for the Continental Tire Monterey Grand Prix, powered by Mazda before it’s too late. Demand has already exceeded capacity for the Premier Pit Row Suites, thereby making the Flagroom the ideal, and remaining hospitality option.
The canopied tent is ideally perched between Turns 4 and 5 with expansive views of Turns 2, 3, 4 and 5 as drivers position themselves for the critical uphill climb toward The Corkscrew.
The Continental Tire Monterey Grand Prix, powered by Mazda, features the Monterey debut of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, America’s all-new premier sports car racing Series. The Series was created by the merger of the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car and American Le Mans organizations, both of which had a long history of competing at Mazda Raceway. The TUDOR Championship features two styles of cars, Prototype and GT (Grand Touring). Each style of car has two classes, Pro and Pro-Am, meaning there are four classes of racing on track together, each with their own battle for the lead.
Four other very competitive Series will also be competing, the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, Mazda MX-5 Cup, IMSA GT3 Challenge by Yokohama and making its first-ever appearance, the Lamborghini Super Trofeo.

Think of three exotic car companies that have long filled the dreams, and walls, of little boys around the world. It’s not hard to imagine that those likely marques originate near one another in Italy.
It’s the year of tre in Monterey as Italian exotics – Lamborghini, Ferrari and Maserati – showcase their remarkable pedigrees at three separate events held at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. And each one will assuredly bring smiles to visitors of all ages who are strolling through the race paddock or watching from hillsides and grandstands.
In honor of National Military Appreciation Month (May) Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca will be offering FREE general admission to all active military who attend the Continental Tire Monterey Grand Prix, powered by Mazda in uniform on Saturday May 3, 2014.
“It is a fitting tribute to the men, women and families who serve our country,” says Gill Campbell, CEO and general manager of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. “And for many of our veterans, it will be a kind of homecoming as our race circuit has long been a fabric of Fort Ord history where many service men and women were stationed.”
As road racing fans prepare for the inaugural running of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship May 2-4 at the world-renowned race track, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and Continental Tire agree to continue the successful partnership they began in 2011.
