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.
In addition to the major events at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca that connect your brand message to the consumer, we offer a multitude of advertising opportunities from traditional to new media advertising.
Ventana has two tasting rooms to experience their Estate Grown, award-winning wines. The original tasting room is located just minutes from the Laguna-Seca Raceway on Highway 68. Our second Tasting room is at the winery in Soledad and offers the sights, sounds and aromas of wine in production. Come see why Ventana Vineyards has won awards and acclaim both for its wonderful wines and for its friendly and entertaining staff. We love to share our wines and more than thirty years worth of fascinating stories about wine grapes and Monterey County.
The focus of Bernardus is to create wines that flatter the palate and stimulate the imagination. Our Marinus Estate Bordeaux-style red wine is the centerpiece of Ben Pon’s dream. It is complemented by Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc from cool coastal climate vineyards. We also offer limited bottlings of small production and vineyard designate wines, which are available exclusively through the tasting room and wine club…taste a dream.
Family owned and operated since 1982, this French-style Chateau rests on sixteen acres amongst plush vineyards and oak-studded mountains in beautiful Carmel Valley, a short 15 minutes from the Monterey Peninsula. Guests are welcome daily to taste hand-crafted Private Reserve wines, flagship Merlot and limited release Proprietary blends from the soils of Monterey County. A magnificent setting for picnicking on the Garden Cobblestone Courtyard or touring the Estate grounds and winemaking facilities.
Open for tasting: Monday- Friday: 8:00am to 5:00pm
