IMSA and WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca have agreed to a three-year contract extension that will keep the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and other IMSA-sanctioned series at the Monterey circuit through at least 2024.

The 2022 event, as previously announced, will run on April 29-May 1, moving back to its planned springtime date.

The relationship between the County of Monterey and IMSA pre-dates the series’ merger between Grand-Am and the American Le Mans Series.

“The County of Monterey and our entire business community are genuinely pleased with the continuation of the IMSA series,” said John Narigi, president and general manager of WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.

“There is great optimism in the air for a full return of teams, fans and sponsors to our beautiful and welcoming destination. We look forward to carrying on the sports car racing tradition.”

IMSA President John Doonan added: “WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca is one of the world’s most iconic road courses, and is a favorite stop for many of our stakeholders and competitors.

“The sports car racing heritage at this facility goes back to its earliest days, and we are proud to confirm this extension that will continue to bring our flagship IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and other highly competitive IMSA-sanctioned series to the Monterey Peninsula for another three years.”
