Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is one of four race tracks to have hosted an American Le Mans Series event in each of its seasons. Featuring multiple classes of high-tech sports cars competing together, the American Le Mans Series sees constant passing and on-track battles throughout each race. The six hour endurance race, which starts at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday May 12, takes competitors from daylight, to dusk, pushing drivers' and crews' mental and physical abilities.
'With multiple driver changes, speed variations between the classes and the overall challenge of endurance racing, the American Le Mans Series offers plenty of action for fans,' says Gill Campbell, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca CEO/General Manager.
The Mazda MX-5 Cup, Cooper Tires Prototype Lites powered by Mazda, Pirelli World Challenge Cadillac Grand Prix and IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge by Yokohama support races provide on-track activity throughout the weekend. Off-track offerings include driver autograph sessions, race simulators, tech talks, and of course, plenty of food, beer, wine and Patrón.
