Those are taken. I'm still trying to get an idea of how many tents/cars we can fit in 'em. Are we allowed to park in general parking or infield with VIP if we're staying there overnight?

Hahah naw man, $360 is a year's worth of gym membership so that I won't NEED to rent a golf cart.

Check with the county. They administer the park. That info should be on their website.

You can buy tix the day of the event if need be. A two day pass is $45.00 and I am working out the "issue" we have going on with camping....I'll say this....only one car can be on site while we have to stow the other MINI's else where......and aparently we can onlt have ONE tent per site..... Belive me I'm looking into figureing this all out.

Here's the ticketing page:

https://www.laguna-seca.com/Tickets/...ets&EventID=21

It's $55 for a 3-day pass (which is required if you're staying Friday and Saturday night), $25 extra if you want to be able to park your car trackside. I got the VIP Parking pass so that we have a car to store our booze and foods in during the day without having to walk all the way back to the campsite.

The only deadline I know of is if you order after October 4, you have to pick up your tickets at Will Call instead of having them mailed to you.

Have a great time. IIRC, last year yielded some amazing pics from those that went. Let's make sure to post them up again this year.

Good times indeed! It was fun roughing it in the great outdoors this time around.

I woke up this morning and my face was as crispy as those brats we cooked this weekend....Mmmmmm brats....
