Reserved Parking Passes

Reserve a Paddock Parking Pass HERE!

Want to park closer to the action, make parking at Sea Otter a breeze with a  reserved parking pass to one of our reserved parking areas.

  • $50/per day per pass.
  • Passes are limited.
  • March 30, 2020 is the last day to purchase and have it mailed to you prior to the event.
  • If you purchase your reserved pass AFTER March 30th, you will need to pick up your pass at Will Call.  To get to Will Call, park at Wolf Hill (free parking) when you arrive,  then walk to Will Call in the athlete  registration building. Once you have your parking pass in hand, walk back to your car at the Wolf Hill parking lot, and drive to Reserved  Parking to park.  You will need to show your parking pass to enter Laguna Seca with your vehicle.

****You will be turned away from the vehicle entry gate and will be re-directed to the Wolf Hill parking if you do not have your pass with you.***

Passes not received in the mail or purchased after March 30th will need to be picked up on-site. Park on Wolf Hill and pick the Reserved Parking Pass up at Will Call before parking in the Paddock area.

Athletes’ tip: In a rush to race, or get started on your Gran Fondo ride? Park on Wolf Hill. From there, the parking attendants can quickly direct you to Athlete Registration, which is in the Red Bull Energy Center. Beyond that, plan ahead. Check out the Festival map before entering Laguna Seca, and allow thirty minutes to get off the highway, park your vehicle, and bike/walk to Athlete Registration.

Think riding with someone who’s headed to one of the restricted parking areas, instead of general parking at Wolf Hill, will get you to Athlete Registration faster? Nope. Wolf Hill is closer to Athlete Registration than, for example, Expo parking. That’s why so many signs from Wolf Hill Parking point to places people need to go, many of which are located in the Red Bull Energy Center AKA Athlete Registration building. To get there, follow the signs along the clearly marked pedestrian pathway that heads down the hill.
