Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is a jewel of a road course on California’s beautiful central coast. Probably the most famous in California, the racetrack is 2.238 miles (3.602 km) long, with a 180 feet (55 m) elevation change. Its eleven turns are highlighted by the circuit’s signature turn, the downhill-plunging ‘Corkscrew’ at Turns 8 and 8A. The most prestigious races are held there, from American Le Mans Series, to Indycar and Sports Car Series.
