Here in Monterey, visitors and locals alike can always count on a fun, exciting time at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. In addition to larger events that take place throughout the year, the race track also has smaller events going on every month. The next big event to take place at Laguna Seca is the Continental Tire Sports Car Festival! The race will take place on the weekend of September 7 to September 8, 2013. If you love cars and racing and will be staying at one of the hotels near Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, head over to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca enjoy the race!

The Continental Tire Sports Car Festival will be sponsored by Mazda and will feature the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series. The two races that will be taking place are the Daytona Prototype class and the Grand Touring (GT) category. Visitors will be on the edge of their seats while anxiously watching drivers compete to cross the finish line first. The Laguna Seca track is especially known for The Corkscrew, a turn that is unique to the track. With a 12% elevation drop combined with a hard-left then hard-right turn, The Corkscrew will make the race even more exciting! Which drivers will be able to conquer The Corkscrew and win the race?

At the end of each day, those attending will have the chance to meet the drivers. Get in line to receive autographs and shake hands with the drivers. One celebrity that will also be in attendance is Patrick Dempsey! Best known for stealing the hearts of viewers through his role on Grey’s Anatomy as doctor McDreamy, he also is a fan of racing cars! Dempsey will be competing in the GT class.

Race over to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca to check out the Continental Tire SPorts Car Festival!
