There are 37 cars in all four classes entered for the second race of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship’s West Coast swing, the Continental Tire Monterey Grand Prix powered by Mazda.
It will also mark the first TUDOR Championship race at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with all four classes in the same two-hour, 40-minute event; last year saw a pair of two-hour races.
ENTRY LIST: Continental Tire Monterey Grand Prix
The same 17 cars (nine Prototype, eight GT Le Mans) that raced at Long Beach last weekend continue onto Monterey. As in Long Beach, the Starworks Motorsport Daytona Prototype is on the entry list but not expected to race.
The only difference in the driver lineup will occur in GTLM, with the previously announced altered lineup at Porsche North America. Michael Christensen will pull double duty in the team’s pair of Porsche 911 RSRs.
Prototype Challenge will again be at seven entries. BAR1 Motorsports will have an altered lineup, as will JDC-Miller Motorsports with Mikhail Goikhberg joined by Indy Lights standout Zach Veach making his TUDOR Championship debut.
GT Daytona sees 13 cars listed. The 10 full-season entries from Sebring carry over, with three notable additions this race.
Marc Miller and Jeff Mosing will share the No. 93 Riley Motorsports Dodge Viper GT3-R, taking over the car driven by Al Carter and Cameron Lawrence, among others, in the first two races. Carter and Lawrence lead the GTD points standings heading into the weekend, but that will change.
Additionally, Flying Lizard Motorsports’ Audi R8 LMS will compete in its home race with drivers TBA, and the No. 18 Muehlner Motorsports Porsche 911 GT America is also listed with drivers TBA.
This will be Round 4 for the P and GTLM classes, and Round 3 for PC and GTD.
