We had some pictures of this on the site earlier, here’s a splendid full HD video lap of Laguna Seca with Marc Gene, filmed as he set a new unofficial lap record for the course of 1’05.78, driving a Ferrari F2003-GA:
I think Laguna Seca bid to host a race, but lost out to Phoenix for some reason. Given how that race went, I bet they regret that decision.
Mind you, I seem to remember there were a couple of bad accidents at Laguna Seca which would probably rule it out of F1 permanently. Hope IndyCar goes there though. The calander seems to change quite a but there, so it’s not impossible.
Also @keithcollantine isn’t Long Beach in California too, making that 3 races there?
