Last year’s Sonoma races gave us the closest finish in Spec MX-5 Challenge history. This year, history was made once more.
AUSTIN, June 15, 2021 – The Spec MX-5 Challenge Series’ racers prepare for another record-breaking event weekend. Sonoma Raceway will host the series in the fourth West Region event of the season. On-track, the competition is heating up.
Spec MX-5’s trip to the historic WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca did not disappoint. Built in the late 1950s this track has become synonymous with speed and rhythm. Located between Salina and Monterey, California the paved track has 180 feet of elevation with 11-turns. Arguably the most iconic part of this speedway is the “Corkscrew,” at turns 8 and 8A where drivers are challenged to react fast and maintain control.
