Turn 9, Mazda Raceway, Laguna Seca

Although not as famous as its corner mates—the Corkscrew and the Andretti Hairpin—Turn 9 at Mazda Raceway, Laguna Seca is one of the most exciting corners in the country.

It has taken me nearly 10 years to truly understand this corner in all of its complexity and, even now, I rarely get the “warm fuzzy” feeling a driver feels when he exits a corner, knowing it could not be done any better. With all of that said, and for all of those reasons, it is my favorite corner in North America.
