The sounds of motorcycles will again roar through the central California hillsides as the eni FIM Superbike World Championship returns to Monterey July 11-13, 2014 for its only U.S. appearance.
“When World Superbike returned to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca this season we agreed to a three year contract,” says Gill Campbell, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca CEO/general manager. “We were very pleased with the first year and look forward to building upon its success.”
The Ferrari Challenge returns to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with three full days of racing with the Ferrari 458 Challenge. This engaging series allows Ferrari owners the opportunity to compete wheel-to-wheel while providing Ferrari enthusiasts the chance to watch the Prancing Horse run in their natural environment – the race track.
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.
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.
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.
