Laguna Seca is located in California, USA, and is one of the top non oval circuit tracks in the country. First built in 1957, the circuit has changed several times over the years, the main one being to lengthen the circuit to meet the minimum length requirements of the FIA. After the long uphill straight is the infamous turn 8, otherwise known as the corkscrew. The circuit takes a left hand turn and it drops away, the going into a right hander. The riders and drivers love it, and the steepness of the turn is almost unreal! Today the track holds various national events and a round of the FIM Moto GP championship, and the ALMS.
