Laguna Seca

Last weekend I went to the Ferrari Challenge at Laguna Seca, with friends/teammates Jason and Prateek.

Here are some of the cars lined up on the straightaway.  A sign gave their speed as they exited the straightaway, typically 130-140 MPH.  Here’s a video.

The “corkscrew” is the most unique feature of the track at Laguna Seca; Wikipedia calls it “ of the motorsport world's most challenging turns, due to the drop in elevation as well as its blind crest and apex on the uphill approach,” and we did see one car get turned around on it.  Here are the cars going through it, and here’s a video.

We also got to see a lot of new and classic Ferraris, and the garage tents where mechanics worked on the cars.
