Charity event a chance to drive at Sonoma Raceway Jan. 12

Ever dreamed of tackling the Sonoma Raceway road course in your own car? You can enjoy some high-speed thrills, all in the name of charity, as the Sonoma chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities hosts the sixth annual Laps for Charity event on Saturday, Jan. 12.

The once-a-year-opportunity invites participants to take their vehicle for a few laps around the 12-turn road course. For just $150, it includes a pre-lap classroom safety briefing with professional drivers, three lead-follow laps around the 2.52-mile circuit, a picture of your car on track, plus a “hot lap” in the instructor’s car.

All proceeds benefit Sonoma County youth organizations through SCC, the charitable arm of Sonoma Raceway, which has distributed more than $6.4 million to Sonoma County youth groups since 2001.

A limited number of spots are available between 2:30 and 4 p.m. Participants must be at least 18. Passengers are not permitted. All cars must have shoulder strap seat belt restraints and mufflers and pass a basic technical inspection. Visit or email Cheri Plattner at for more information or to register.
