Location: 29355 Arnold Drive, Sonoma, CA 95476

Date: Saturday, October 2nd (individual participation) – Sunday, October 3rd, 2021 (SFBA Group)

Time: 9:00AM – 5:00PM


Registration Fee* $20 per vehicle – Click here to register at MotorsportReg

*Spectator attendance is free. This is a charity event, and a portion of the corral registration fee will be donated to the Speedway Children’s Charities.  Registered vehicles will be parking at a Corral exclusively for the SFBA Mercedes-Benz Club.  If you’d like to participate in both days, there will not be a Corral setup for the SFBA Mercedes-Benz Club on Saturday, October 2nd, 2021.


Our SFBA member Joel Camarda will be our Private Racetrack Guide on Sunday to answer any questions you may have regarding the Sonoma Raceway, Vintage Car racing history, and give a guided tour of different sections of the track (for those willing to walk).


There is also an opportunity to get a ride (as passenger) around the track in a vintage race car via a $75 donation to the Sonoma Speedway Children’s Charities.  This can only be arranged directly on site at the track, not through the SFBA Mercedes-Benz Club.
