Owner description: 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.

“MotoGP 2012”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

Great racing. Great time. Go Nicky. Go Ben. Better luck next year. The souvenier shops could learn to accommodate a few more people though.

“World Class”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Just spent the weekend at the MotoGP race and .......WOW what a track. Any motorsport event would be worth seeing here, but if you are into bikes this is a must. Booked into the VIP Village through Pole Position Travel and was not disappointed. Cannot thank Gordon Howell enough for a really great weekend.

“A historical tribute to Monterey”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

Known to many in the auto world, Laguna is an awesome historical place to watch see world class racing. Couple that with being in gorgeous Monterey County where there is so much to see and do when not at the raceway and the trip becomes much more than just a race weekend.
