Porsche Cars North America (PCNA) and Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca announced today that the next Porsche Rennsport Reunion will again take place at the famed California race track the weekend of October 9-11, 2015.
The colorful sights, sounds and “untold” stories from this year’s Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion will be broadcast nationally Saturday, October 11 at 10 a.m. ET on FOX Sports 1. The one-hour special goes in-depth into America’s premier historic car race held annually on the scenic Monterey peninsula.
In 50 years, what we now know as the SCCA National Championship Runoffs has changed names, qualification requirements, and locations, but the idea has remained the same – gather the best amateur road racers in one place and let them compete against each other to crown a Champion.
Before we move on to the next 50 years, let’s look back at the first 50, by the numbers:
52,933.80: Total miles traveled by the race winners, in 20,852 laps.
25,883: The total number of Runoffs entries in 50 years.
Twilight Cycling, presented by Rabobank, will be held October 8 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. during the SCCA National Championship Runoffs where the paddock will be full of more than 500 race cars from all over the U.S. and Canada as their drivers compete for the ultimate amateur racing prize.
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.
After a successful inaugural season the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship announced that it will return to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca next year for a May 1-3, 2015 race weekend.
“Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is one of the finest road tracks in the world,” says Gill Campbell, CEO/general manager. “A perfect venue for the return of the TUDOR Championship. Credit is truly due to the hard working volunteers who put on our events and the loyal fans who continue to support sports car racing in America.”
As it had for three days prior, an early morning marine layer gave way to brilliant sunshine for Sunday’s final rounds of racing at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, illuminating the “museum in motion” that has become a cornerstone of Monterey’s annual Classic Car Week.
