It's a beautiful venue. Salinas sits just behind Monterey a couple clicks away.
It certainly is a beautiful setting for a track.
I've been to a lot of race tracks in my day and was a regular at Riverside International Raceway for IMSA and Trans Am races. But Laguna Seca was the only one where you could buy Calamari at the track!

Wow, a conversation with Zora Arkus Duntov. That must have been quite an experience.
Pretty brief as he was very busy, but I did get to see his mid-engine Corvette prototype!

They use to serve deep fried tentacles on a bun with tartar sauce. Mixing squid with draft beer has the potential to be explosive 🥴

Great posts on Laguna & Riverside ^^

This year would be Carroll Shelby 100th birthday.
I met him at Road America maybe 15 years ago, shook his hand & felt truly starstruck_:bowdown:
