2015 – GT Class Season Finale at Laguna Seca (Sep 10 and 13)

Round 20 of the GT class for the Pirelli World Challenge (PWC) was held at Laguna Seca in Salinas, California (September 10 to 13). This 11-turn road course is about 2.3 miles in length and is known for the iconic “Corkscrew” turn. The season finale was won by Alessandro Balzan in the #29 NGT Motorsport Ferrari 458 GT3 Italia.
