Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca: A Tale of Legend, Challenge, and Triumph will provide that opportunity at the Basque Cultural Center in South San Francisco, Calif., on March 22.

For 60 years, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca has been the spiritual home for racers and sports car aficionados. A place of legends. The event will bring a behind-the-scenes look at the track’s history, the many challenges, and the plans for the next 60 years from Gill Campbell, CEO and general manager of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and Barry Toepke, Vice President, Communications & Historic Racing.

Born in Exeter, England, with a background in event planning, Campbell has overseen a $25 million construction project, part of the Master Plan for the Laguna Seca Recreation Area, which has resulted in the beautiful premier pit row suites and garages, information trylon, and Red Bull Energy Center. She has held her role since 2002 at the 11-turn, 2.238-mile road course that currently has six major events hosting elite road racing series from around the world.

Toepke joined Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in 2009 from RWB Marketing & Communication, Mitsubishi Motors North America, and the Los Angeles Auto Show. His knowledge of automobile and racing history is integral to the annual Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, the largest event held during the famed Monterey Classic Car Week.

The event is hosted by Dan Davis, Editor, Victory Lane Magazine; Jon Rosner, West Coast Correspondent, British Marque Magazine; and Tim McCrane, Blackhawk Museum of Danville.
