Plans enacted by Sports Car Racing Association of Monterey Peninsula (SCRAMP) to keep heritage and deliver economic development for Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in upcoming racing seasons.

Renewed through 2020

Recently, the Monterey County Board of Supervisors voted to approve the county’s staff endorsement to deliver a three-year management agreement to the Sports Car Racing Association of Monterey Peninsula (SCRAMP) for the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca Facility management.

Built in 1957, the Monterey County-owned Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca facility will continue its operations and calendar of events for the 2017 campaign as well as planning future facility management for the 2018 season and beyond.

The plans hope to capture the facility’s iconic heritage as well as deliver a significant economic development to the area, according to President of the SCRAMP Board of Governors, Michael Smith. In 2017, major events at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca will include the Ferrari Challenge, Spring Classic Vintage car and motorcycle races, Continental Tire Monterey Grand Prix and the Prielli World Challenge.
