Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca

Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca

Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca (previously known as Laguna Seca Raceway) is a paved road racing track in central California used for both auto racing and motorcycle racing, originally constructed in 1957 near both Salinas and Monterey, California, USA.

The current racetrack is 2.238 miles in length with a 180 feet elevation change. It has eleven turns, including the famous “Corkscrew” at Turns 8 and 8A. A variety of racing, exhibition and entertainment events are held at the raceway.

The name Laguna Seca is Spanish for “dry lake” – the area where the track now lies was originally a lake, and the course was built around the dry lake bed. After the course was reconfigured, two artificial ponds were added.
