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.”
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.
Hospitality packages provide one of the best ways 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 Trans-Am cars and high-revving Formula 1 cars, from the comfortable confines of a hospitality suite.
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.
Before the on-track action commences, 10 riders competing in this weekend’s eni FIM Superbike World Championship, GEICO Motorcycle U.S. Round enjoyed a behind-the-scenes visit to the renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium.
The heart of historic downtown Monterey will be transformed into an outdoor motorsports museum when historic race cars line Alvarado Street between 5 and 7 p.m. on Friday, August 8 when Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca kicks of the 2014 Monterey Classic Car Week activities.
To support the 100th anniversary celebration of Maserati at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion August 14-17, noted Italian car collector Lawrence Auriana is sending not only key race and passenger cars to Monterey, but also a vintage 1952 Fiat 642 Maserati race car transporter.
