The Monterey Peninsula's love affair with world-class racing traces its...

The Monterey Peninsula's love affair with world-class racing traces its beginnings to the inaugural running of the Pebble Beach Road Races in 1950. Those sports car events quickly outgrew the public roads of the Del Monte Forest and a beautiful new road facility was born on November 9, 1957.Since then, Monterey has been visited by some of the most prestigious racers in history; Roger Penske, Dan Gurney, Parnelli Jones, Kenny Roberts, Bobby Rahal, Wayne Rainey and Valentino Rossi to name a few. The late 60's and 1970's may be remembered as the "Can-Am Years," but it was also the debut of Trans Am, IMSA and AMA motorcycles. CART Indy Car racing and Grand Prix Motorcycling put their stamp on the track in the 80's and 90's. More recently, the huge evolution MotoGP has created a phenomenal global following for the track.Today, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca hosts five world-class race weekends each season, with elite road racing series from around the world visiting the Monterey Peninsula every year.

Have never been much of a gear-head, but was invited to Porsche Rennsport by friends who definitely are. Accepted the invitation, but didn't have very high expectations. Wow was I wrong! We had a camp site front row right above the track at the famous corkscrew hill/turns. Was able to watch every race from the comfort of our own tents,... More

We heard about rv camping at Laguna seca through someone we met. We just got back from staying 3 nights and it was great. We were in site 78 in the chaparral campground. The only draw back to the site was it was above the gun range and there is no sewer or cable at the sites. But for 37.00... More

This is a historic race track. Watched Indy Lights and Pirelli World Challenge races. Staff very friendly and helpful. Able to walk around easily, sit at any grandstand. Good junk food choices, no lines for bathroom. Great weekend for a race fan.

Nice facility! Very organized on the parking and good food! Wish the seating had backs. The shop is very diverse and people working were friendly. You can move from seating area to area so if you want to see a certain view you can find it!

Awesome classic race cars, super pit access combined with an exciting road race track - it just doesn't get any better. I recommend you spend a little more for the preferred parking pass. It allows you to park right next to the track, near the Andretti Hairpin Turn. Well worth the expense. I have already set aside the dates for... More

We went on the final day of the racing week, really enjoyable to see all the classic cars from years gone by still being used competitively. Good venue for spectators with excellent views of most of the circuit from the beer tent adjacent to the world famous corkscrew. Access to all of the paddock to see up close the classic's... More

Visited for Pre Reunion at Monterey Historical Races. Entrance was free except pits area. My kids and I enjoyed it a lot. We had good teriyaki chicken plates for lunch. You may consider to bring ear plug for kids. The car racing was real loud.

Friendly staff at this fantastic track. It really feels like a small town track and a step back into time. I was very happy with the charm. The antiquated restrooms are in need of an update to say the least
