After a successful inaugural season the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship announced that it will return to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca next year for a May 1-3, 2015 race weekend.

“Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is one of the finest road tracks in the world,” says Gill Campbell, CEO/general manager. “A perfect venue for the return of the TUDOR Championship. Credit is truly due to the hard working volunteers who put on our events and the loyal fans who continue to support sports car racing in America.”

With a race at Road America later today and then just three weekends left in the TUDOR Championship season, the following are the points leaders in the four classes competing:

Prototype: 1) Action Express, 2) Wayne Taylor Racing, 3) VisitFlorida.com Racing

Prototype Challenge: 1) CORE Autosport, 2) 8StarMotorsports, 3) Starworks Motorsport

GT Le Mans: 1) Corvette Racing,2) SRT Motorsports, 3) BMW Team RLL

GT Daytona: 1) AIM Autosport, 2) Alex Job Racing, 3) Paul Miller Racing

One of the unique aspects of a TUDOR Championship race weekend is the unparalleled spectator access to the cars and drivers. Within the open paddock fans can watch crews prepare their cars, take photos and interact with drivers. In fact, all drivers participate in an organized autograph session at each event.

Additionally, prior to the race fans are invited to participate in a free fan walk on pit lane prior to the green flag. There they can get a close-up look at all the teams just moments before they go racing.

Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca will announce its full 2015 race season schedule in the fall, with tickets going on sale in December.
