An automobile museum that bursts to life is one way to describe the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. It is an international gathering of rarely seen race cars that span decades of racing history by returning them to the race track to compete as they once did.
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.
Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is a highly sought-after facility by car and motorcycle clubs, driving programs, automobile companies, and not to mention major racing series who annually compete here. Consequently, the calendar fills up quickly, upon approval by SCRAMP and the County of Monterey Parks Department.
