Interest is growing within the Pirelli World Challenge paddock for the inaugural California 8 Hours, with multiple teams on the verge of confirming entries for Intercontinental GT Challenge’s first trip to the U.S.

The Oct. 13-15 race, to be held at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, will mark the penultimate round of the SRO Motorsports Group-organized championship, which encompasses races on four different continents.

With local teams tabbed to make up the majority of entries for each race, a number of leading PWC GT outfits, including K-PAX Racing, Magnus Racing and RealTime Racing, are targeting to be on the grid.

SRO boss Stephane Ratel said he expects more than 25 cars for the race, with PWC officials estimating in excess of 30 entries, although a provisional entry list has yet to be released.
