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.”
Hospitality packages are still available to enjoy the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion in comfort and style. See 550 historic race cars competing wheel-to-wheel like they once did in their respective era, such as the thundering Can-Am and Trans-Am cars, from the comfortable confines of a hospitality suite.
Here’s a selection of what’s still available before they sell out:
American race driver Derek Hill, son of World Champion Phil Hill, will strap himself behind the wheel of the lone surviving Maserati Tipo 151, of which only three were ever constructed, to race in the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion August 14-17 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Maserati is this year’s featured marque and will officially celebrate its 100th anniversary at the motorsports gathering.
While vintage automobile racing trends as a mostly-gentleman’s sport, plenty of women have shaped its decades-old history, and several will keep the wheels in motion driving their own collectibles at this year’s Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. Scheduled for August 14-17 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, the annual event this year celebrates 100 years of Maserati and punctuates action on the track with 550 pre-selected historic and period-correct race cars competing in 15 race groups over the four-day gathering.
With the inaugural race of 2014 firmly cemented, the riders, teams and manufacturers have a little time before Round 2 in Aragon, Spain comes charging into their sights. This round (2) really sets the tone for the grueling season ahead for these international athletes as racing with the eni FIM Superbike World Championship kicks into high gear.
In honor of National Military Appreciation Month (May) Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca will be offering FREE general admission to all active military in uniform and veterans with military ID who attend the Continental Tire Monterey Grand Prix, powered by Mazda on Saturday May 3, 2014.
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.
Beginning Monday, April 7 for three weeks, participating Papa Murphy’s stores throughout California will offer its customers a discount coupon for a Sunday, May 4 ticket to the Continental Tire Monterey Grand Prix, powered by Mazda.
The big prize, too, is a text-to-win contest where five lucky winners will take their place on the starting line prior to the May 4 race to see who draws the one key that will start the Mazda3. That lucky winner who starts the engine will take home a brand new Mazda3.
