WEATHERTECH RACEWAY LAGUNA SECA

Driven by famed racers, this is a very technical track including the Corkscrew turns and drops. The Corkscrew is a one-of-a-kind turn in motorsports. Here’s what makes the hard-left, hard-right combination so spectacular: At the apex to Turn 8 (the lefthander and entry to The Corkscrew), the elevation change is a 12 percent drop. By the time a race car reaches the apex of Turn 8A (the righthander), the elevation is at its steepest – an 18 percent drop. The Corkscrew drops 59 feet between the entrance of Turn 8 to the exit of Turn 8A—the equivalent of a 5½ story drop—in only 450 feet of track length. From Turn 8 to Turn 9, the elevation falls 109 feet, or just over 10 stories. A legendary track located in the breathtaking scenery of the central California coast, Laguna Seca has hosted many of the famous racing legends. This is a very technical track that requires strategy. If you are an amateur racer or driving sim racer looking for insights from others, this is a must. For the students who are applying science, technology, engineering and math principles to the track be prepared for complex problems!
