Now’s the time to race toward the VIP Flagroom for the Continental Tire Monterey Grand Prix, powered by Mazda before it’s too late. Demand has already exceeded capacity for the Premier Pit Row Suites, thereby making the Flagroom the ideal, and remaining hospitality option.
The canopied tent is ideally perched between Turns 4 and 5 with expansive views of Turns 2, 3, 4 and 5 as drivers position themselves for the critical uphill climb toward The Corkscrew.
Beginning Monday, April 7 for three weeks, participating Papa Murphy’s stores throughout California will offer its customers a discount coupon for a Sunday, May 4 ticket to the Continental Tire Monterey Grand Prix, powered by Mazda.

Think of three exotic car companies that have long filled the dreams, and walls, of little boys around the world. It’s not hard to imagine that those likely marques originate near one another in Italy.
It’s the year of tre in Monterey as Italian exotics – Lamborghini, Ferrari and Maserati – showcase their remarkable pedigrees at three separate events held at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. And each one will assuredly bring smiles to visitors of all ages who are strolling through the race paddock or watching from hillsides and grandstands.
