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.

You do not have to attend any specific race to enjoy the track. There are always something going on there. Been racing there myself, but this time it was for visit, and the corkscrew is giving you a quick, even just only watching. The blind curv also. Go there just to enjoy. This time the Porche club was racing. You get in for free and can walk around when its private arrangements.

“Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

If you enjoy motorsports it's a must do for at least 1 day. Come early and stay all day. The weather is unpredictable so plan accordingly. Also by prepared to do a lot of walking as there is so much to see and enjoy.

An amazing track - there as guests of Yamaha USA who treated us like royalty. Plenty to see and do - and don't forget the Corkscrew!

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.
