The Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca paddock will be overflowing with events, cars and people. Therefore, ALL participant big rigs, oversized trailers (total vehicle length longer than 50′) and all RVs will be parked in the Hospitality Island area. NO RVs WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE PADDOCK AREA. Paddock space (inside the track) will be available to ALL participants; however, the maximum size available will be 15′ X 50′. If your tow vehicle is oversized or if your car and all your “stuff” won’t fit in a 15′ X 50′ space, you may have to unload what you need for the weekend in your paddock space and park the rig at Hospitality Island. (It’s a short walk over the Turn 3 bridge from the Paddock to Hospitality Island.)

A limited number of enclosed, secure garage spaces adjacent to Pit Lane are available to USCA participants for $200 ($100 per day / 2-day minimum). Garages are available on a first-come, paid-reservation basis. Contact Amber Ball (amber@ultimatestreetcarassociation.com) for garage reservations and payment. Garage access is available Friday 6:00pm through Sunday 10:00pm.

RVs are encouraged to reserve camping spaces in the Monterey County Laguna Seca campground. Some campsites have excellent views of the track and are great places to watch the road course events. Reservations for the campsites must be made directly with Monterey County Parks & Recreation at (888) 588-2267. For more information, visit http://www.co.monterey.ca.us/parks/lagunaseca_camp.html.
Camping outside of but immediately adjacent to the track is available to USCA participants and guests at the Chaparral and Can-Am Circle “C” Campgrounds for $35 per night. Both campgrounds features:
