The Sports Car Racing Association of the Monterey Peninsula (SCRAMP) has been an active and highly visible part of the Monterey Peninsula community. Since our beginning in 1957 when 62 local companies and scores of individuals offered their services and donations to make Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca a reality, SCRAMP has been a community effort.
As a not-for-profit 501(c)4 organization, SCRAMP donates proceeds to local charities and civic organizations. We have grown from presenting a single motorsport event each year to producing five major events that have recently included the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, Porsche Rennsport Reunion, MotoGP, Ferrari Racing Days, eni FIM Superbike World Championship, Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion and the SCCA National Championship Runoffs, among many more.
Originally part of the former Fort Ord military base, Laguna Seca was turned over to the County of Monterey in 1974, and designated the overall management responsibility to the Monterey County Parks Department. SCRAMP operates and maintains the race track and manages the racing events and track rentals that generate more than $1 million annually for the county parks department.
The SCRAMP “family” consists of thousands of volunteers, including a volunteer board of directors. These dedicated volunteers come from all walks of life and across the tri-county area to make up the work force needed to stage motorsports events at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. The largest group of volunteers is comprised of more than 70 charities and civic organizations whose membership numbers in the thousands.
SCRAMP includes a paid professional staff who handle the day-to-day operations.

What cyclist wouldn’t enjoy the thrill of a challenging 300-foot climb followed by an awe-inspiring descent? How about the fact that they can do this on a world-renowned race track?
Monthly twilight rides allow cyclists to experience the excitement of pedaling Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca’s 11-turn, 2.238-mile course. The ride is highlighted by the legendary Corkscrew turn that drops an equivalent of 5 1/2 stories. Rides generally run from 5:30–7:30 p.m. (5-7 p.m. in the winter months), and are open to all levels of cyclists. Helmets are required and the cost is $10 per rider.
Each month is hosted by a different local bicycle club, organization or business, some holding competitions such as time trials or criterium races and many with off-track activities such as barbecue dinners, costume contests and giveaways.
