Historic and contemporary car racing will take center stage on one of the best road courses in America, the WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. The Trans-Am SpeedFest, will showcase a combination of the motoring muscle of the popular Trans-Am Series presented by Pirelli and the vintage and historic racers of SVRA. The Trans Am Speed Festival, a Gold Medallion Invitational event, salutes vintage race cars prepared to the rules of the era in which they were originally raced. There are many special events being planned and will be announced soon.
WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca is 2.238 miles long, with a 180 feet elevation change. The circuits eleven turns are highlighted by its signature turn, the downhill-plunging “Corkscrew” at Turns 8 and 8A. The Corkscrew, is considered one of the motorsport world’s most challenging turns, dropping in elevation as well as its blind crest and apex on the uphill approach. Turn 2, named the Andretti Hairpin, is a difficult and technical double-apex. The straight that runs between Turn 6 and Turn 7 has been renamed the ‘Rahal Straight’ after four-time consecutive Champ Car race winner Bobby Rahal.
