The Laguna Seca circuit, situated on California’s beautiful Monterey Peninsula, has hosted MotoGP races between 1988 and 1994 until developments in MotoGP forced the event to find a temporary race circuit while Laguna Seca underwent a major makeover to meet present day safety requirements. While the circuit’s main characteristics have been preserved; the 3.6km (2.238 miles) racetrack still features its 11 curves; one esse, four rights and six lefts – the facelift saw an extension to the exit lane, replacement of the kerbs, widening of the main straight and bigger run-off areas.
After 10 years MotoGP returned to Laguna Seca in 2005 as part of the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix. The circuit remains a favourite amongst motorsport fans and its geographic location makes for a comfortable year round climate. Adding to the Laguna Seca Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix experience are cypress trees adoring coastline, dramatic cliffs and the gorgeous Monterey Bay
