International Circuit
The Californian circuit is one of the most idiosyncratic venues on the MotoGP calendar, not least because overtaking is especially difficult. Because the surface too is far from perfect, the Laguna Seca track can be very tricky, with hazardous bends, and bumps to be negotiated with great care, so that the performance of the brakes is particularly important.
