WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca Begins its Rebranding for Thrilling 2018 Season
You may have heard that Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is no more. It is now WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. Different name same great events. Here's a press release I received with a list of this year's events.
WeatherTech (https://www.weathertech.com) is the maker of a great line of floor mats and other protective devices for your car.
The WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca logo was designed by Monterey-based Bob Wecker, owner of The Wecker Group. Interestingly, Wecker also redesigned the first logo (1957) in 1977 for Laguna Seca Raceway. “It’s a privilege to continue being involved in providing fresh creative direction of this world-renowned race track,” Wecker said.
Cooper MacNeil, son of WeatherTech founder David MacNeil, will return to Monterey to race his WeatherTech-branded Ferrari 488 Challenge car in the third round of the Ferrari Challenge May 3-6. MacNeil is currently the points leader in the Trofeo Pirelli class after two rounds. The popular driver will keep busy by competing in a Ferrari in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship round in Lexington, Ohio, over the same weekend.
