According to track officials, SCRAMP, which manages the Monterey County-owned Laguna Seca Recreation Area, has either already completed or is on the fast track to finishing the following physical improvements to the facility:

  • Drainage, erosion control, and water-management improvements
  • Water treatment services and drilling of a new well
  • Top floor of Newman building upgrade; restrooms for all spectator events
  • Campground restroom and shower buildings
  • Red 9 parking re-paving; lake bed parking paving
  • Go-karting fencing
  • WiFi enhancements for improved connectivity
  • New mobile diner
  • New start/finish bridge
  • New park-wide communications systems and corner marshal stations
  • New fuel pumps
  • Architectural plans for permanent paddock buildings

“With the county’s oversight and encouragement, there has never been such intense progress and planning in infrastructure for this facility than what is occurring now," said Michael Smith, interim CEO of SCRAMP. “While much of it has been made to ‘unseen’ areas, track renters, series organizers, and visitors will immediately begin seeing noticeable improvements in their overall experience."
