Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca Paddock Information


Use the main entrance from Highway 68 for access – all other gates shown on the Laguna Seca map will be closed.

The paddock will open for the event at approximately 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 30. The paddock gate will be open all night during the event.

If you arrive prior to 6 pm Wednesday, you must park in the paddock entry staging area. To get there, go past the County Park admission gate, go to the stop sign and make a very slight left down the hill into the open area where early entrants line up in order of arrival to await the paddock opening. SFR is required by Laguna to stay off the main roads until the paddock opens.

You will be staged in the sequence in which you arrived and will be released in the same sequence. An SFR volunteer will direct you during the release process.

An admission fee per vehicle is charged by Monterey County Parks to enter the race track/park. That fee will be waived if anyone in the car has a valid SCCA membership. If you have forgotten your card, you will have to pay the entrance fee.

A helmet or legal head protection is required outside the paddock gates when riding any type of motorized vehicle. This law is rigidly enforced by local law enforcement.
