WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, Monterey, California

WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca is an 11-turn, 2.238-mile jewel of a road course on California’s beautiful central coast. While the track is a favorite of racers and fans worldwide, many focus on one specific section – officially Turns 8 and 8A – or more commonly known as the Corkscrew.

The Corkscrew is a one-of-a-kind turn in motorsports. Here’s what makes the hard-left, hard-right combination so spectacular:

At the apex to Turn 8 (the lefthander and entry to the Corkscrew), the elevation change is a 12 percent drop. By the time a motorcycle reaches the apex of Turn 8A (the righthander), the elevation is at its steepest – an 18 percent drop.¬† The Corkscrew drops 59 feet from the entrance of Turn 8 to the exit of Turn 8A – the equivalent of a 5¬Ĺ story drop – in only 450 feet of track length.¬† From Turn 8 to Turn 9, the elevation falls 109 feet, or just over 10 stories.

Event Overview
