Adrenaline junkies, novice cyclists and competitive riders alike will want to make note of the 2014 dates of the monthly Twilight Cycling rides, presented by Rabobank at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
Twilight Cycling evenings are open to all ages and levels of cyclists. All riders are welcome to experience the thrill of pedaling on the 11-turn, 2.238-mile world famous race track that is normally reserved for motorcycles and race cars.
This season truly emphasizes the essence of motorsports. “From the inaugural TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, with state of the art endurance sports cars, to Ferrari Racing Days, a welcome return of World Superbike and the prestigious Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, it will be a dream season for everyone,” says Gill Campbell, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca CEO/general manager. “With the SCCA Runoffs closing out the season in October; fans will have the opportunity to see the very best in sports car racing.”
Bicyclists of all ages and skills are invited to experience the excitement of pedaling the challenging 11-turn, 2.238-mile race track at the popular monthly Twilight Cycling ride.
This month’s Twilight Cycling is being hosted by Gears 4 Good (G4G), a Monterey based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. G4G’s goal is to supply bicycles to people who cannot otherwise afford them, which provides essential transportation to work or school. The organization also offers bicycle maintenance training for its recipients.
Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is hosting a Toy Drive to benefit the Monterey Peninsula Salvation Army and as an extra incentive, all donors who bring a new, unwrapped toy for a child up to the age of 12 will receive a free ticket to the opening Friday of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship on May 2, 2014.
More than $1,500 and a barrel of donated food was raised this morning at the inaugural Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot held at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. One hundred percent of the proceeds raised go to the Food Bank for Monterey County.
The $1,500 raised enables the Food Bank to purchase $7,500 worth of food for families in need.
It was an international affair, as well. Visitors from Japan, the Netherlands, England and across the country who were visiting Monterey for the holiday weekend enjoyed the experience.
Officials from Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and Sports Car Club of America confirmed today the dates of the 2014 SCCA National Championship Runoffs®, October 6-12, 2014.

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 May 2-4, 2014.
