I was over at Laguna Seca Raceway last Tuesday, checking it out for a possible drivers school in August. Have any of the D brethren driven on this track? From my superficial observation, it looked a bit challenging. Update: to clarify, video game driving of Laguna Seca Raceway does not count. -_-

You probably already know this, but take a cruise through the tracking section, there's sure to be some good feedback there: http://www.e90post.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=98

Thanks. Yeah, I had looked in that forum, searching specifically for Laguna Seca, but I thought there might also be some 335d drivers specifically who had driven it. Especially those guys in California. I have no doubt that it would be a lot harder than Summit Raceway what with all the elevation changes and particularly where you come to the crest of one hill and can't see what is coming over the crest.

DFan...Laguna Seca is easily THE top of my list for tracks I want to drive. I can't offer you any experience there, but I can offer some advice from one friend to another: do it!

Btw, yes, it is a challenging course. The corkscrew might as well be a national monument my dream would be to drive a Mazda Furai there, followed by a track-prepped FD RX7 but I would definitely take my d (modified as yours) as a close third.

The first picture is Turn 4 and the second is Turn 5. The corkscrew I guess is 7, 8, and 8a.
