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.

Great venue, has a more intimate feel than a lot of the big international race tracks. Plenty of good places to watch the racing.

Sorry I do not know the reason why there 2 prices quoted for pit lane seats as I am fortunate to have a very close relationship with Wayne Taylor Racing which allows me to have access to all locations!!

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
