Mazda Raceway looking for classic cars Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is searching for classic sports cars for use in a display representing the 50th Anniversary of the world-renowned facility during the circuit’s Open House and Champ Car World Series test session on Saturday, March 10. Vintage sports cars attending the Open House will receive preferred parking upon arrival (while space lasts) beginning at 9:00 a.m.
Additionally, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is planning a display area for unique sports cars and race cars that may be one of a kind or have contributed to the history of the facility. Those who feel their car fits the description should send a brief e-mail and photo describing their car and its contribution to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those who bring their late 1950’s era sports cars and dress in period costume will receive a pair of tickets to the U.S. Sports Car Invitational featuring the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series May 18-20.
The March 10th event marks the return of the Champ Car World Series to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for an open test session. Champ Car drivers and series movers-and-shakers will participate in driver autograph sessions and provide you a chance to ask questions during the always popular Champ Car fan forum.
Other activities during the day include a Food and Wine Tasting Pavilion, the Silverstone Pub, live music, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca 50th Anniversary Display featuring a “Tribute to 1957” and “Experience Monterey County” featuring exhibits and activities from around Monterey County.
The day will conclude with a Sock Hop celebration at the Red Bull Energy Center from 6p.m. to 8 p.m. featuring oldies and surf band Kelly and the Beachcombers. A $5 donation will benefit the Salinas Valley Healthcare Systems Foundation and the Laguna Seca Raceway Fund.
