Circuit Information

The name “Laguna Seca” is Spanish for “dry lagoon”, which is where the track was built over. After the course was created, two artificial ponds were built. Laguna Seca has 11 turns and is famous for its signature turn: the downhill-plunging “Corkscrew” at Turns 8 and 8A.

Alex Zanardi executed one of the most memorable maneuvers through the Corkscrew in 1996, which has become known as “The Pass” in IndyCar racing lore. He also set the record for the fastest race lap in this same year.
