MONTEREY, Calif. – The Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli and IMSA events scheduled for later this year at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca will be held as closed events and not open to general admission spectators.

The IMSA Hyundai Monterey Sports Car Championship will be on track for the weekend of Oct. 30 to Nov. 1, and is the only west coast stop for IMSA following COVID-19 rescheduling across the nation. The race doubles as the finale for the GTD class of the WeatherTech Sprint Cup season and will include the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America and the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge.

The Ferrari Challenge Series, scheduled for the weekend of Sept. 25 – 27, is a North-American series run at six acclaimed circuits, organized by Ferrari North America and sanctioned by IMSA. Since its first year of competition in North America in 1994, the Ferrari Challenge series has developed into the largest single-make GT series in North America. Today, drivers compete in the Ferrari 488 Challenge Evo.

WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca has options for fans who have already purchased tickets for either event. Purchasers may opt to transfer their ticket order to the 2021 event or receive a refund on tickets and camping.

The Laguna Seca Recreation Area will be open for camping and limited day use on both race weekends, and the paddock will be closed to anyone not directly associated with WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, IMSA or the Ferrari Challenge series.
