The Corkscrew

Ah, the Corkscrew. One of the most famous turns in racing, at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in California, a quasi-blind turn into a six-storey drop. Woo hoo! I’ve seen it through on-board cameras, but have never watched a race at Laguna Seca. On Sunday, I watched two! The TUDOR United SportsCar Championship held its Monterey Grand Prix at Laguna Seca, and split its four classes of cars into two races to create a double-header – the Prototype Challenge¬†and GT Daytona classes, followed by the “pro” classes, Prototype and GT Le Mans. Per usual, I’ve included the full broadcasts of both races right here!

The races themselves are quite exciting, but be sure to pay attention to the track itself. Boy does it have some personality! I’m going to drive Laguna Seca some day.
