Notes: Laguna Seca is my happy place on the West Coast. It was for a long time the home of Mazda and as a Miata enthusiast that was my attraction, though I started going there even before I bought my little convertible. In 2013 I went twice both for the Grand-Am and the ALMS race. I returned twice to volunteer a Miata reunion event and tacked on the SRO Intercontinental Challenge event on each trip, with California 8 hour being the most interesting recently. The facility has since been renamed WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.
