Known around the world as one of the greatest racing facilities, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is run by SCRAMP (Sports Car Racing Association of the Monterey Peninsula) a 501(c)4 non-profit organization. Comprised of a group of dedicated and passionate volunteers, SCRAMP takes pride in providing a wonderful guest experience while simultaneously giving back to the local community.
SCRAMP volunteers work hard and long hours to support an event. Since 1957 SCRAMP has been supporting world class motorsport events on the Monterey Peninsula and we couldn’t do it without the efforts of thousands of individual and group volunteers from all over the world.
Whether you are looking for a team building event, want to network, learn soft skills such as working with the public, or you just want a way to give back to your community, we welcome you to volunteer your time and services.
The individual VIP hospitality options are one of the event’s best-kept secrets, with prices for a three-day weekend ticket starting as low as $300 per person which includes general admission ticket, paddock pass, reserved seating, parking pass, souvenir program, catered breakfast, lunch and beverages on Saturday and Sunday, and light snacks and beverages on Friday.
There are 3 individual VIP hospitality options available: Premier Pit Row Suite; Paddock Suite Turn 3; Flagroom (between turns 4 and 5); Please see below for complete details.
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, including the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, Ferrari Racing Days, eni FIM Superbike World Championship, Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion and SCCA National Championship Run Offs.
Originally part of the former Fort Ord military base, Laguna Seca was turned over to the County of Monterey in 1974. The County 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.
We want to ensure every guest enjoys their experience at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and does so in a safe and fun environment. Please do your part in extending the same courtesies to others attending.
