Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca will host five motorsports events this year and we welcome you to apply for media credentials. Please keep in mind that credentials will only be issued to individuals working on assignment from a recognized media organization that regularly provides original, primary source news. We do not credential freelancers.
Individuals assigned to cover a single event, or a combination of Mazda Raceway events should apply for event credentials on an event-by-event basis. Season credentials (not valid for World Superbike) are available on a limited basis and should only be applied for if you are assigned to cover three or more of our 2015 events.
Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca welcomes and appreciates legitimate media coverage; however, application for credentials does not guarantee approval.
Be Prepared Before You Start This Process!
With your online application you will need to provide a letter of assignment on official letterhead. Included in the request should be the names and titles of the individuals assigned to cover the event(s).
If your media organization covered Mazda Raceway events in 2014, please also include clips of your coverage. If this will be your organization’s first visit to the raceway, please offer samples of your coverage from other related coverage from the past year.
World Superbike applicants are required to provide a passport photo and date of birth for each applicant.
The 2015 Credential Application System will open February 2.

Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is located in one of the world’s most desirable destinations. Our appeal extends beyond attracting motorsports enthusiasts. The Monterey Bay area attracts wine aficionados to the abundant vineyards; shoppers to Carmel; bikers, hikers and kayakers to the scenic coastline; and not to mention golfers to the world-renowned courses dotting the landscape.
Monterey is within the San Jose / San Francisco ADI, which is the nation’s fifth largest. This affluent market base provides our marketing partners with access to a highly desirable consumer audience.
Rather than having you fit within our parameters, we want to hear from you so, together, we can build a program that meets your goals and objectives. From corporate hospitality functions for groups of 20 – 1,200, product exhibitions and consumer activations to impactful onsite signage, a plan can be prepared to successfully deliver your desired results in a cost-effective manner.
Small or large organizations can benefit from being part of some of the most thrilling racing in the world. We have exciting opportunities available for the 2015 season.
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.
