The Rolex Sports Car Series is one of the most competitive professional road racing championship in North America. The series’ Daytona Prototype class has attracted the attention of superstar drivers and universally recognized teams, in the process revolutionizing sports car racing with close-fought battles at the front of the field and close finishes.
An automobile museum that bursts to life is one way to describe the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. It is an international gathering of rarely seen race cars that span decades of racing history by returning them to the race track to compete as they once did.
One stop that’s on each competitors “must drive” schedule in the American Le Mans Series is Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. For six demanding hours, drivers and crews will be put to the test on the 2.238-mile, 11-turn course that thrills drivers, but also demands their respect.
The race begins in bright sunshine, but darkens each passing hour to end in darkness. An explosion of fireworks greets the winning driver as the checkered flag waives them across the finish line.
