Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca: The Monterey, California track is known as a fan and driver favorite. With its ideal location in northern California and 2.238-mile layout – including the famous Corkscrew – the course at Laguna Seca usually generates an exciting weekend.
Hometown Victory: Change Racing’s luck made a turn for the better at the previous IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship event at VIR as the team scored a breakthrough victory. The team not only led from the drop of the green flag all the way to the checkered flag, but also topped every single session of the weekend.
Driver Stats at Mazda Raceway:
Corey Lewis: Corey Lewis has had the pleasure of racing at Laguna Seca on multiple occasions with his best finish in last year’s Lamborghini Super Trofeo race. Lewis made a spectacular charge from last to first, claiming victory with a nine-second advantage over the rest of the field. Lewis also joined Change Racing last year in the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship effort with a top-10 result.
Jeroen Mul: With just two more races yet to go this year, Mul has showed no problem acclimating himself to new tracks around the United States throughout the season. Although Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca will be yet another unfamiliar surface, Mul is eager to make his first trip down the Corkscrew. Mul will continue his simulator and Xbox Forza training prior to the event, but looks forward to experiencing the track and all its glory first hand.
Lamborghini Super Trofeo Drivers:
Richard Antinucci: No. 16 Lamborghini Huracan LP620-2
Bryce Miller: No. 34 Lamborghini Huracan LP620-2
Lamborghini Super Trofeo: Change Racing will once again bring its two Lamborghini Super Trofeo entries to the event for the North American championship season finale. Driver of the No. 16 Change Racing Lamborghini Huracan LP620-2, Richard Antinucci, comes into the weekend looking to be crowned Champion. Currently he sits second, with a close 14-point difference separating him from the leaders.
Bryce Miller has shown growth throughout his debut season – scoring one win and five podiums with the team this year. Miller returns to the Pro-Am category and holds third place in the championship standings ahead of the final round at Laguna Seca.
Corey Lewis: “Going back to racing after a big win like we had at VIR is really exciting. There are very few tracks that compete with Laguna Seca and of course you can’t beat getting to race in California. Last year we had a bit of bad luck, but I am looking forward to using our winning momentum and applying it to this race.”
Jeroen Mul: “This is yet another brand new track for me. But I have to say that MRLS is one of those tracks which is so famous in the racing world that pretty much every racer knows the layout. Many drivers, including myself, have learned this track through many laps on a racing game like Forza Motorsport 6 which I learned on my Xbox One at home. So, I already know very well where to go left and right. But I’ve been told that no amount of console and sim training can prepare you for your first time going through the Corkscrew, probably the most famous corner in racing (next to Eau Rouge on Spa Francorchamps in Belgium). So, I am obviously very much looking forward to my first experience there! On top of that I obviously want to get out there again and continue the amazing flow that Change Racing, Corey (Lewis) and I currently have with our No. 16 Lamborghini Huracán GT3.”
After earning Team and Driver Championships in 2013, 2014, and 2015, the team grew in 2016 to also campaign in the IMSA WeatherTech Championship with the Lamborghini Huracàn GT3 in GT Daytona (“GTD”) Class competition. The team enters 2017 with a promising young driver line up with Corey Lewis and Jeron Mul sharing the driving duties on the No. 16 Monster Energy / XBOX / Forza / Windows 10/ Pertamina Lamborghini Huracàn GT3. Change Racing will also make its 5th consecutive Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo campaign as the team looks to extend its record of achievement in the category.
