F1 car at laguna Seca this weekend!

Zonta to take on Laguna Seca

Toyota test driver Ricardo Zonta is to run a TF106 on the Laguna Seca circuit in California this weekend and is targeting speeds of up to 195mph at the world-famous venue.

The Brazilian will be behind the wheel of the 2006 machine at the American road course on Saturday and Sunday during the annual Monterey Historic Automobile Races.

The demonstration run is part of showcase illustrating the evolution of the Formula 1 car and the Japanese-manufacturer is delighted to have the chance to give US race fans a second look at F1 this season.

“In bringing the F1 car to Monterey, Toyota wants to provide an unusual and exciting opportunity for race participants and spectators to view an F1 car up close on the track and in the garage,” said the team’s vice president of marketing, Jim Farley.

“Other than the recent United States Grand Prix in Indianapolis, this is the only appearance the F1 car will make in the US and the only time it will be easily accessible for viewing by spectators.”

The team’s appearance at Laguna Seca – a track made legendary by the Corkscrew – will also include a public Q&A session with Zonta as well as the chance for fans to see the TF106 up close in the pit lane.

The event comes just a week after Jarno Trulli became the first man to drive an F1 car through the streets of Helsinki in Finland.
