The Alley

Ready to roar at Mazda Raceway

We’re in final countdown mode for round four of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

The preparations for today’s Prototype and GTLM race at 11:15am have been dominated by the underdogs – Mazda Racing in Prototypes and Scuderia Corsa in GTLM.

The sweeping turns of Mazda Raceway are ideally suited to the Le Mans-style LM P2 machines and Mazda’s machines dominated every practice and qualifying. Today would be a fairytale result to win here on “home” soil.

New GTLM Ferrari team may be the new kids on the block in the toughest GT competition on the planet – but they dominated Friday’s action and Brazilian second-generation racer Daniel Serra put his Ferrari 488 on pole.

Today’s race will be shown live on Fox Sports 1 with this afternoon’s PC/GTD event on Fox Sports 2. Go to www.imsa.tv for details.

Michelin Alley caught up pole winners Tristan Nunez and Serra plus Mazda boss John Doonan (pictured above taking a read of Michelin Alley) after qualifying – take a listen….
