Work begins at Laguna Seca

THE Laguna Seca racing circuit has started work on $15m upgrading program which will result in the circuit finally getting permanent garages with VIP hospitality suites above them and a brand new media center and race control building. The work will be finished by the start of 2004 after which further changes will be made to create a new access road into the paddock area.

Laguna Seca has often been mentioned as a potential site for a Formula 1 race in the United States but to date has always been rejected because of its lack of decent access roads and poor facilities. When the work is completed many of these problems will have been solved as there was a major program last year to improve access to the track.
