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.

Went to see the spring classic, fantastic day wandering round the pits and free courtesy ride to the top of the corkscrew. Great pub at the top of the corkscrew selling local craft ales.

So much history and it was just a pure pleasure to see this historic and still prominent raceway first hand. Beautiful location and the track really is quite larger than it looks on TVs and video games. Gives you a true perspective of the place...More

I've tracked at Buttonwillow and willow springs...Laguna Seca is so so so much more. Iconic and historical for a reason. More speed, as well as technical. Incredible scenery, although I really didn't notice background till the afternoon! Not any facilities open on this slow day...More

It depends on what you want to do. Getting the 3 day pass gives you the option to see a bit each day, if you like; it can get fairly sunny & warm at the track and there isn't much shade. The main races are on Sunday; other... More

I cannot help you. If you do not know the area it could be a good base to enjoy all the surrounding sites at a reasonable cost. Is nearby to Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur.
