Historic Ferrari racing returning to Laguna Seca Raceway

Michael James

Historic Ferraris and their modern-day relatives will take to the race track May 18-20 for Ferrari Racing Days at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, California.

Ferrari 458s will compete alongside their predecessor the F430s in the Ferrari Challenge as well as separate 599XX, FXX and Shell Historic races.

“We had a tremendous response to this event last year,” said Gill Campbell, CEO/raceway general manager. “Ferrari’s have such a loyal following and we had participants and spectators from around the world turn out to see these cars in their natural environment – the race track.”

The single marque racing series allows Ferrari owners and drivers seeking to sharpen their skills to compete against each other on some of the finest race tracks in the U.S. and Canada.

The vehicles have the same overall appearance and engine as road-going Ferraris while utilizing track-oriented modifications and features.

The Ferrari Challenge Series is organized by Ferrari North America, Inc., and is sanctioned by the Grand American Road Racing Association.

Advance purchase general admission is $50 for a three day pass. Children 12 and under are free with a paying adult. There is free parking and VIP parking available for $25. Hospitality options start at $300 per person.
