USF2000 adds Laguna round
The Cooper Tires presents the USF2000 National Championship powered by Mazda will be one of the support series for the American Le Mans Series weekend at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. The series joins the Playboy Mazda MX5 Cup, Cooper Tires Prototype Lites Championship, the Patrón GT3 Challenge by Yokohama and the Star Mazda Championship presented by Goodyear for the event on May 21-23.
“We wanted to include Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on our 2010 calendar of events and we're delighted that the opportunity has now presented itself so our drivers can compete there,” said Dan Andersen, chief executive officer of Andersen Promotions, which promotes the USF2000 Championship. “Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is one of the greatest road courses in North America and I know our USF2000 competitors will put on a terrific show for the fans. While this is a non-points event this year, we hope to return in 2011 with an event on our regular schedule.”
“Our fans will be treated to more than 11 hours of racing over the weekend,” said Gill Campbell, CEO/general manager of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. “The addition of USF2000 to the event, which is a feeder series for the Star Mazda Championship, adds even more open-wheel racing for the spectators.”
