From October 22 to 24, Laguna Seca will host the first ever North American Global Tuner Grand Prix, a time-attack event bringing the very best modified cars from around the world to compete for bragging rights.

Similar to the European Tuner Grand Prix and the Japanese International Lap Battle, the event is held on one of only four weekends at Laguna Seca where there are no sound restrictions. The competition will be divided up into three classes, including Street, Tuner and Unlimited, with categories for front-drive, rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive cars. In addition, the event will also include the GPGP Challenge Race – a 50 minute sprint session that will include pro race cars and club racers.

Also included in the event will be the Pirelli Driver’s Cup (running Porsche GT3 cup cars), a 30-minute Historic Motorsports Association race, as well as car corrals for almost ever brand.
