  • Get your teen here when they have their learner's permit and get them on the road on the raceway to learn defensive driving. For the cost of your deductible, get your teen safe on the road!  more »
  • One of those tracks that if you're a race fan, you should see. I suggest you walk around instead of sitting. The different views make the experience better. Usually cool in the morning but warms up ea...  more »

  • Sonoma knows how to put on a World Class Event. I have been going to all kinds of races at Sonoma for 20 years. I am handicapped and their staff could not be more kinder to me. Handicap parking, grandstand elevator, special seats in the grandstands, and lots of courteous help in the restrooms and in every area of the track. They go out of their way to accommodate me AND the other guests I bring. Not only are they the best with helping the handicap they are the best at putting on a race, too.
  • Great track! Didn't know what to expect the first time I went but the staff and track officials were very helpful and nice people! Was there recently for Winter Jam 2017 & can't wait to go back!
  • An AHHHHMAZING Speedway...the old SEARS POINT RACEWAY with a new name and a beautifully laid out seating and food court. Bathrooms were plentiful, as were food and spirits. ADA parking was available, and shuttles to take you right to the GATE! I was very impressed with the HANDICAPPED ACCESSIBILITY and the volunteers who made it happen. Sonoma is such a beautiful place--and the weather was perfect with BLUE SKIES and a gentle breeze. Another one off my BUCKET LIST 😎😊
  • Good track surface. The owners keep raising the rental rates, the security does not prevent theft but rather patrols looking to stop people from having any fun. At least the food, gas, and drinks are way over priced. 3j's motorcycle day (and the track staff that ran it) was really the best thing about the track but it sounds like the track owners are killing that charity event in favor of padding their pockets.
  • Events throughout the year that I've never been disappointed by. The latest I attended was 2017 Winter Jam largest to date. 300 registered drift vehicles, one weekend obscenity, and good old wholesome fun 🤣🙃!!!!

Where to stay in Sonoma

Prices for accommodations in Sonoma are often high. The hotels on or near the town square offer an unbeatable location for experiencing the city's many cultural delights, but you'll pay extra for the convenience. Properties located farther out are more economical and quiet, and provide easy access to Sonoma's stunning countryside. If you are planning a longer holiday, consider booking a vacation rental that feels like a home away from home.
