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.

I'm actually in an RV campsite overlooking the racetrack across from the bleachers and the views are superb. Take a Mazda for a spin on the racetrack or just visit the gift shop.

Laguna Seca is an iconic raceway. I'm most familiar with motorcycle racing - and this is a great world class track and facility. The area is large and attractive, multi-purpose, with some attractive views across the hills and valleys.

Traffic getting in and out of race is ridiculous. Takes too long and does not make sense. Track not very crowded. Perhaps because it is difficult to get inside. Ticket price too high. If lower,,,,,you might have more people attend.

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.
