There are very few places where racing fans can go to witness the melodic sounds of Ferrari racing cars, such as the race-equipped F430 and F458, and the track-honed 599XX, FXX and Formula 1 at full throttle. This May, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca will provide that rare experience for fans of the Italian coachbuilder and car lovers alike.
At 860 horsepower, the Ferrari FXX is a mean, yet sleek drivable race car that is capable of sprinting from 0-62 mph in just 2.7 seconds and a top speed of 249 mph.
The Ferrari F1 Clienti program is the pinnacle of recently-retired Ferrari Formula 1 cars. Here’s where the revs jump to ear-plugs-necessary levels. An F1 car can accelerate from 0-62 mph in under two seconds and decelerate even faster. Ferrari plans a full grid of these exceptional single-seat former F1 cars.
In GRAND-AM Road Racing, the Rolex Sports Car Series features Daytona Prototypes and production-based GT cars running simultaneously. The Daytona Prototype (DP) category has revolutionized sports car racing with ample battles at the front of the field and close finishes in practically every race. Like the DP class that has redefined prototype racing, the GT class has done the same for high-performance, production-based sports car racing.
MotoGP is the premier motorcycle racing world championship; an 18-race series visiting 13 countries, four continents and with pan-global television coverage. Seven nationalities of the world’s most skilled riders line a grid armed with cutting-edge motorcycle technology with prototype machinery fielded by four manufacturers: Ducati, Yamaha, Honda and Suzuki.
Motorcycle racing fans will again gather on the scenic Monterey Peninsula for the Red Bull United States Grand Prix, featuring Round 10 of the MotoGP World Championship, which returns to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca July 27-29, 2012.
