Skip Barber moves karting shootout to Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway
SBRA shootout moves to Laguna Seca
Barber Racing School will head west to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca this December for the 14th edition of its annual Karting Scholarship Shoot-out. The event, the largest and single most important event for karters transitioning to race cars, is scheduled for Friday, December 3rd through Monday, December 6th at the Salinas, Calif. facility.
“Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in early December is a win-win for both karters and the Shoot-out,” explained Todd Snyder, VP of Competition at Skip Barber Racing School.
“The new date removes a huge schedule conflict with a major karting event and Mazda Raceway provides a new challenge for karters looking to make that first big move in their career.”
This is not the first time the Shoot-out has been held at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. In 2005, Jordy Vorrath bested 47 other karters to win the grand prize of a fully-funded drive in the 2005 Skip Barber National, where he was runner-up to National Champion Gerardo Bonilla.
Any karter intending to enter the Shoot-out must submit an application by September 30. The application can be found by visiting www.skipbarber.com/kartingshootout. Please note that submission of the application does not guarantee a seat in the Shoot-out.
