NOTE: The Sound Limit for this event is 92db. Cars running over 92db will not be allowed to run. Refunds or credits will not be given for cars that do not pass sound.
SPECIAL FUEL NOTICE: MAZDA Raceway has race fuel, but they occasionally run out and sometimes the pumps do not work. If having unleaded race fuel is critical, be sure to make arrangements for a backup source.
LOCATION: MAZDA Raceway Laguna Seca Raceway is located at 1021 Monterey-Salinas Highway, Salinas CA 93908. There is no entrance fee for this event.
EVENT SCHEDULE: A full schedule will be emailed out a day or two before the event and provided at registration when you check-in. Generally, plan to show up at the track by 6:50am and go straight to registration in the classroom to check in. Please check in BEFORE unloading or working on your car. Check-in will close at 7:40 and the Drivers' Meeting may begin as early as 7:40am (depending on your run group) also in the classroom. The Drivers Meeting is mandatory for all drivers unless you have received prior clearance from Speed Ventures to show up late.
EARLY UNLOADING on Thursday is To Be Determined. The gates will be locked at 8pm and no one is allowed to stay overnight in the paddock.
CAMPING/OVERNIGHT STAY is NOT allowed in the paddock area for this event, although you may leave your cars, trailers, and equipment in the paddock overnight. Camping is allowed in the Laguna Seca campgrounds just up the hill. Campsites there can be booked through the Monterey County Parks Department. RV hookups are available.
FOOD & WATER: A snack bar will be open for this event. A water dispenser will also be provided. Please bring your own bottle to refill at the track. You must have car NUMBERS, at least 8” tall, located on both sides AND the back of your vehicle. This is mandatory for all cars. You can make up a 3-digit number (no 1's and only one 7 allowed in the number) - we will notify you if it is in use by another driver at the track.
TOW HOOKS/TOW POINTS that are strong and can be pulled from multiple angles are highly recommended. If you do not have a tow hook on the front and rear of your car, please have one installed or figure out a tow point (for both front and rear) that we can use to pull you out of deep sand from difficult angles. Speed Ventures will not be responsible for damage done to your car due to the towing process - this is part of the risk you assume when participating in a Speed Ventures event. Due to the deep sand in the traps and the need to occasionally tow from difficult angles, tow points are critical for this event.
