Porsche Rennsport Reunion V has moved to September 25-27 due to conflicting dates with the World Endurance Championship in Fuji, Japan, which would have significantly impacted the quality of Rennsport by pulling away vital assets needed for the prestigious event.
Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and Porsche Cars North America have been working together to move the date to accommodate all the many elements that are being planned for another successful Rennsport.
The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion will celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of the most recognizable road racing cars of the ‘60s – the Shelby GT350 Mustang – as the 2015 featured marque August 13-16, 2015 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
The Shelby GT350 Mustang came onto the scene just one year after the Ford Mustang debuted. Ford Motor Company, already having success with Carroll Shelby in the Cobra program, enlisted Shelby to make the new Mustang competitive. And together they did, winning three consecutive SCCA national championships in its maiden years.
The eni FIM Superbike World Championship returns to the famed Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on California’s scenic Central Coast for a third consecutive year July 17-19, 2015, and its only U.S. appearance.
“We continue to be pleased with the growth of the fan base for the Series,” says Gill Campbell, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca CEO/general manager. “With the continuation of GEICO as title sponsor, it seems clear that the U.S. motorcycle industry also sees this as an important event in which to reach out to their enthusiasts.”
One of North America’s finest and longest running auto racing series, the Pirelli World Challenge, will crown their 2015 champions at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca Sept. 11-13 at the Series’ season finale.
The popular Series boasts a paddock of more than 70 race cars and consists of six classes of vehicles: grand touring (GT); touring car (TC); grand touring sport (GTS); touring car B-spec (TCB), touring car A (TCA) and Porsche GT-Cup (GT-Cup). Well known brands including Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, Cadillac, Mazda, McLaren and Porsche make up the classes of competition.
For the caretakers of period-correct historic race cars, November 17 will likely now be marked on their calendars, as it is the opening day entry requests can be submitted to compete in the annual Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion August 13-16, 2015 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
Motorcycle enthusiasts eager to see the eni FIM Superbike World Championship return to the Monterey Peninsula may purchase tickets beginning January 22 at 8 a.m. PT online at MazdaRaceway.com or Ticketmaster.com or by calling the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca ticket office at 800-327-7322.
The Tissot Superpole ahead of tomorrow’s two Superbike World Championship races has been won by Tom Sykes of the Kawasaki Racing Team after a blistering lap in hot and sunny weather at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca circuit. The current reigning champion and points leader of the eni FIM Superbike World Championship clocked in 1’21.811, a new World Superbike best lap of the circuit, to claim the 23rd WSBK pole position of his career, his third in a row after the ones scored at Misano and Portimao.
