The highlight of the series is participation at the 2015 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. “With an expected grid of more than 40 Formula 5000 race cars coming from Australia, Canada, England, New Zealand and various regions of the US, we look forward to some excellent racing and giving fans a great show,” said F5000 Drivers Association president Seb Coppola.

Coppola noted that such a large group of F5000 cars has not competed at Laguna Seca in 40 years. The last professional F5000 race there happened on October 12, 1975. Mario Andretti won it in a Lola T332 now owned by Zak Brown, who plans to race it at Laguna.
