The California 8 Hours at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca will now take place on Saturday, March 30, one day earlier than previously announced.
The three-day event, which follows the Intercontinental GT Challenge season-opener on February 1-3, has been moved 24 hours earlier in order to better accommodate live TV.
The event’s final timetable and broadcast schedule will be revealed in due course. However, testing is expected to take place on Weds. March 27 before the weekend’s official track action begins on Thursday.
Friday brings with it qualifying and subsequent Pole Shootout ahead of Saturday’s race.
Teams and manufacturers can now also submit and nominate their entries after the process officially opened this week.
