Circuit information

The U.S. Grand Prix is held on the Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway, near Monterrey, California, USA. The circuit was built in 1957 and is used for car and motor racing ever since. The track has hosted several racing series, including the Champ Car, American Le Mans, Superbike and MotoGP. The track itself has undergone significant changes over the past two decades to meet evolving safety homologation requirements of FIM and FIA as part of which its length was extended and several safety measures were taken.

The anti-clockwise, 3.6 kilometer long circuit has 11 turns of which 4 are right hand corners and 7 left-handers. The famous Turn 8 and 8A combination, often referred to as the Corkscrew, is considered one of the most challenging turns of motorsport, due to the drop in elevation as well as its blind crest and apex on the uphill approach.
