No rest for the wicked!! Sports Prototype Cup North America heads to Laguna Seca with a bumper grid

Updated: May 7, 2023

Straight off the back of Sonoma Raceway last weekend, Laguna Seca is up next this weekend coming!! It’s a packed schedule for a bumper grid in the Sports Prototype Cup North America in association with Prototype Sprint Series Association (PSSA).

Revolution Sonoma Raceway Winners

No doubt the highlight of the Sonoma meeting were the drives from Ron Fletcher and Chris Hinojosa in the Sunday morning 1 hour endurance race. With a 25 car multi class grid Ron and Chris battled from 11th and 12th on the grid to secure P2 and P3 overall respectively in the hour long race (P1 and P2 in class). Beaten on the road only by an Elan DP02 Le Mans racer. A fantastic drive up the grid in what was a beautifully sunny Sonoma Raceway! Can they repeat their success at Laguna Seca?


Laguna Seca will see at least 7 Revolutions and 5 NP-01’s battle for the honours across the four day event. The Sports Prototype Cup North America running in the Prototype Sprint Series Association (PSSA) is supporting the Trans Am SpeedFest, so we are all expecting a big spectator turn out.

All about Laguna Seca:

Laguna Seca Raceway is a paved road racing track in central California used for both auto racing and motorcycle racing, built in 1957 near both Salinas and Monterey, California, United States. The racetrack is 2.238 miles long, with a 180 ft elevation change. Its eleven turns are highlighted by the circuit's signature turn, the downhill-plunging "Corkscrew" at Turns 8 and 8A which falls over 5 stories.


The name Laguna Seca is Spanish for dry lagoon: the area where the track now lies was once a lake, and the course was built around the dry lake bed. After the course was reconfigured, two artificial ponds were added.
