It’s time again to take to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and experience the thrill of pedaling the world famous race track, including the challenging 300-foot climb and high speed descent down The Corkscrew and Rainey curve. The fun happens Wednesday, October 12 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., just prior to Porsche Rennsport Reunion IV.
Porsche loyalists will flock to the Monterey Peninsula October 14-16 when Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca hosts Porsche Rennsport Reunion IV.

One of the highlights will be a chance to visit with more than 50 legendary Porsche drivers who will be attending and signing autographs each of the three days. It will be a rare opportunity to mingle and hear stories of their competitive days.
