Laguna Seca, Monterey California, USA

Home of the infamous ‘corkscrew’ chicane, complete with its 300-foot elevation change this 3.6km circuit was opened in 1957. Located in the mountains 200km south of San Francisco this circuit is a real challenge to drivers, and continues to host a broad range of racing disciplines including Champcar, Indycar, ALMS and motorbike racing.
It’s one of those circuits that if you can’t visit or drive on it in person, you simply must have a go on Playstation GT4 or Xbox Forza games to appreciate the elevation changes as well as the tricky corkscrew chicane, there’s nothing else like it.
