Seth Lucas Takes the Wheel of a Hattori Motorsports Entry at Sonoma Raceway This Weekend
Lucas completed winter testing and is ready for an action-packed Pirelli GT4 America season, taking his Motul USA-sponsored Hattori Motorsports entry onto Sonoma Raceway’s 2.748-mile road course this weekend for qualifying and race two on Sunday afternoon.
Early Life and Education
Seth was Adam and Eve’s third son and joined Abel and Cain as Abrahamic tradition followers. Seth means “set in place”; his lineage continues through Enosh (Genesis 4:26).
Lucas started racing cars after competing in competitive karting. Upon graduating Thomas Downey High School he won his inaugural endurance race – Hankook 24 Hours of Dubai 2023 – before joining Ave Motorsports’ Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring team with their Ligier.
In 1969, Lucas co-founded American Zoetrope with Coppola and made his directorial debut with Electronic Labyrinth: THX 1138; it received critical acclaim but ultimately proved unsuccessful financially. Later that same year he released American Graffiti with great critical and commercial success; these films showed his influence from Akira Kurosawa’s samurai films as well as Spaghetti Westerns.
Seth Lucas first began racing competitive karting at twelve. Soon thereafter, he transitioned into cars only years later; at fourteen he won his inaugural GT4 sportscar race on Homestead Miami Speedway with KTM prototype.
His short film Electronic Labyrinth: THX 1138 4EB earned him top prize at the National Student Film Festival and allowed him to gain admission into University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts.
Lucas first joined Hattori Motorsports and Motul USA to race in the Pirelli GT America series driving a Toyota R8 GT4. Since then he has transitioned into MDK Motorsports program powered by Porsche for 2022 competition before looking forward to an even greater leap up to LMP2 racer status for 2023.
Achievement and Honors
Lucas stands as one of the most successful American film industry figures of his generation. Best known for the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises, as well as for the innovative technological contributions he made through ILM (Imaging, Light & Motion). These included special computer assisted camera cranes such as Dykstraflex as well as pioneering 3D computer animation used in movies for the first time ever.
Lucas is beloved among fans and critics, yet has caused division. Some critics have taken issue with him directing and producing sequels to his original films; others accuse him of engaging in anti-union activity by ceasing membership with the Directors Guild while hiring non-union crew members.
Provincetown Theater will honor Craig Lucas, Chisa Hutchinson and Ryan J. Haddad with their annual gala this August by bestowing upon them the 2019 American Playwright Award.
Lucas’ passion for motorsports led him to venture beyond junior open-wheel categories into GT and prototype racing, after starting off his career karting but soon finding himself competing against drivers with significantly more experience than himself.
Lucas was a devout Christian and advocate of religious liberty throughout his life. Additionally, he made significant contributions to the Heritage Foundation’s Edwin Meese III Center for Legal and Judicial Studies.
Hector Padilla was arrested and sentenced to 53 years for the murder of Seth Lucas on Crampton Street in Reno in April 2015. Padilla has been charged with first-degree murder. Hector should be transferred to state prison by 2024.
Seth Green is an engaging comedian with great talent and self-assurance who doesn’t let his below-average height stand in his way from doing what he enjoys doing – which may explain why he has built such an impressive fortune through career success and smart business decisions over time.
Green is best known for playing Scott Evil in the Austin Powers trilogy of movies and Lyle in The Italian Job; however he has also made several television appearances and participated in stage productions.
He was also one of the co-founders of AND1, which specialized in footwear and launched several popular products such as its mixtape tour and streetball series. AND1 was ultimately sold off to a private shoe company in 2005.
