GRAND-AM Racing returns to the Monterey Peninsula July 8-9, 2011
About 6 year(s) ago by The Inns of Monterey
GRAND-AM's top-tier Rolex Sports Car Series has established itself as the most competitive professional road racing championship in North America. The Rolex Series Daytona Prototype category has attracted the attention of superstar drivers and universally recognized teams through its extremely raceable and relatively affordable format, and has revolutionized sports car racing with plentiful battles at the front of the field and close finishes in virtually every race.
Like the Daytona Prototype class that has redefined prototype sports car racing, the Rolex Series GT class has done the same for high-performance, production-based sports car racing. With an eye toward the cost-containment and close competition that has propelled the popularity of the Daytona Prototype class, the GT category provides a stable battleground for the world's top automobile manufacturers. Perhaps best of all, the Rolex Series' two-class format allows race fans watching from the grandstands or on television and the media covering the sport to follow the action with just two easy-to-distinguish classes of race cars - Daytona Prototypes and GT.
The Rolex Series is also home to some of the best and most recognized names in motorsports - Scott Pruett, Max Angelelli, Alex Gurney, Jon Fogarty, David Donohue, Andy Lally and more - and is a road racing showcase for NASCAR notables such as Jimmie Johnson, Juan Pablo Montoya, AJ Allmendinger, Jamie McMurray, Bobby Labonte and Paul Menard. Open-wheel stars like Scott Dixon, Dario Franchitti and Darren Manning and others will also make spotlight appearances in the Rolex Series this season.
Don't miss a minute of the excitement. Tickets are available at mazdaraceway.com and rooms are still available July 8-10, 2011 at the Inns of Monterey.
