Laguna Seca confirms Motorock Trans-Am Tour as part of Grand Prix of Monterey.

LANSING, Mich. (Jan. 30, 2004) -- Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca has confirmed the Motorock Trans-Am Tour will be part of the Grand Prix of Monterey Champ Car World Series weekend, Sept. 10-12 at the 2.238-mile, 11-turn road course. The event will mark the return of Trans-Am racing to the Monterey Peninsula after a two-year hiatus.

"Trans-Am racing has a history at Laguna Seca dating back to 1969, and we're excited to return to one of America's preeminent permanent road courses," said Motorock Trans-Am Tour Executive Director John Clagett. "From the famous Corkscrew to the Andretti Hairpin, Mazda Raceway will pose a unique challenge to our competitors, giving the fans quite a show."

"We've had many requests from our fans to bring Trans-Am back, so we're obviously delighted to include it on our Grand Prix of Monterey weekend," said Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca General Manager Gill Campbell.

The Motorock Trans-Am Tour features closed-fendered, production-based, V-8-powered sports cars, competing on permanent road courses, and temporary street and airport circuits throughout North America. The Trans-Am Tour is America's oldest continuously running road racing series and celebrates its 39th anniversary in 2004.
