Update from Laguna Seca today:

MotoAmerica Superbike SpeedFest At Monterey

Bikes are back! We are excited to announce that MotoAmerica will return July 10-12, 2020 for round 6 of their 10-race championship. Laguna Seca has been a part of the MotoAmerica schedule every year since its establishment in 2015, and we welcome them back for the 6th year in a row.

This year’s 3-day event is a celebration of speed with all divisions of the championship competing on the technically-demanding 2.238-mile track. MotoAmerica has made an exciting addition to this year’s event, sure to thrill racing fans of all ages.  At four select tracks, including WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, the Heritage Cup vintage event will be held in conjunction with the 2020 MotoAmerica series, and will feature superbikes and other racing motorcycles from 1986 and earlier. See MotoAmerica.com for more details.



The vintage category = "1986 and older Superbikes, as well as other racing motorcycles, two-stroke or four-stroke, GP or Production"  :vroom:

MotoAmerica, Laguna Seca - parking FYI
For those of you planning to attend the Laguna event, I confirmed with the MotoAmerica office that motorcycle parking is free as it has been in previous years when SCRAMP was running things. It's not stated on the M/A ticketing page. You can pay to upgrade to VIP parking if you wish.

As of today Laguna is still on! Let's hope nothing changes and we get to go watch racing!

WeatherTech Raceway - COVID-19 Update
Schedule intact, May 3 Shelter in Place To Be Extended

In consultation with County of Monterey health officials and leadership, planning for events beginning in July are continuing as planned. WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca management remains flexible during this time given the COVID-19 situation, but there are optimistic indicators that scaled back versions may be possible.

As of this time, the MotoAmerica and Ferrari Challenge Series events are still moving forward as planned.

The shelter in place order for Monterey County is set to be lifted May 3, but indications are that the date will be extended.

As we receive new information from the County of Monterey health officials and leadership, we will update this information.

MotoAmerica Superbike Speedfest at Monterey
Event rescheduled from July 10-12 to October 23-25, 2020


MotoAmerica has announced that it has rescheduled the GEICO Motorcycle Superbike Speedfest at Monterey to October 23-25 due to the still-unresolved rules regarding spectator events in California with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The original date for the WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca event was July 10-12 and the race was to be the third round of the 2020 MotoAmerica Series. With the change, the GEICO Motorcycle Superbike Speedfest at Monterey will be the ninth round of the 10-round series – two weeks after the October 9-11 round at Indianapolis Motor Speedway
