An important part of a race weekend at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is the operation of the Pace Car and Safety Vehicles. These vehicles are used to pace the races to the green flag, as well as to bring the race cars under control in the event of a full-course yellow flag. They are also used for demonstration laps for VIPs and special guests.
Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is the only race track to have its pace car program involved in every major event each year and throughout every aspect of the facility. Started in 2003 with the support of Mazda, the program has an impeccable safety record of more than 5,000 track laps without a single injury, accident or failed car part.
The Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca Pace and Safety Car program has has hosted a number of illustrious guest drivers such as Mario Andretti, Danny Sullivan and Nigel Olson, famed drummer for Elton John. The team has also welcomed some famous guests in the passenger seat including Brad Pitt, Patrick Dempsey, F1 Legend Phil Hill, Carroll Shelby, famed Mazda RX-8 designer Ikuo Maeda and Peter Birtwhistle Chief Designer of the Mazda MX-5, among others.
Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is an irreplaceable, internationally-storied racing circuit that must be kept viable for racers and their fans worldwide. It is an integral part of life in the Monterey area. Because it cannot use investment capital, unlike other race tracks, to improve its facilities, SCRAMP (Sports Car Racing Association of the Monterey Peninsula) must call on those who benefit from and most appreciate the value of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca to come forward and ensure that those facilities are built.
The Laguna Seca Raceway Fund is a non-profit group that helps fund improvements at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca through private donations from fans and racers. This is where you, the motorsport enthusiast, can help.
The Laguna Seca Raceway Fund is an established non-profit 501(c)3 corporation with the purpose of raising the necessary capital to implement these improvements. In addition to the Steps to the Corkscrew Program, you can make donations directly to the Fund that are fully tax-deductible.
Thank you for you interest in the Laguna Seca Raceway Fund and in preserving and growing Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
