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.

The raceway needs more food & souvenir vendors for an event as big as this. Even with the huge crowds, the event was awesome.

MotoGP Weekend... What more needs to be said. Although I am more and more disappointed in the gift shop each time I go. I didn't even get a shirt for the 2nd year in a row.

As pretty a racetrack as you will ever see. Even if you are not a race fan, spent some time at this track. Beautiful Central California scenery, and a classic racetrack.

The races always are lots of fun to watch. I did not camp but have heard that the sites are nice and it is a quiet setting with lots of oak trees.
