IMO it looks sweet! a long straight, a short straight, plenty of turns...should be awesome.

i guess motogp has never raced here before. should be spectacular to watch all the veterans take to a new track. these guys will be finding faster ways through their times till the final lap!

Yeah, think so. Laguna is in year 3 of a 5 year contract. Indy has a 3 year contract starting in 2008.

Oh, and Indy will have the 125's and 250's

looks much better than the F1 track. I was wondering what they were going to do about the long banked corner the F1 cars use. Now we know.

Like I said before, I've always wanted to go to Laguna, but Indy is much closer to Houston (travel wise, in case I have to cut the trip short). I'm there (for now).!

10 lefts and 6 rights- I wonder if there is any off/ on camber corners other than the banking?

T-16 doesn't seem like it would be Dorna approved going in to that wall... wonder if there are plans for that to be safer, or if they think that the speeds will be slow enough to not be a concern? Seems strange none-the-less.

Can't remember where I read it now, but yeah, they mentioned possibly changing the angle of attack heading at that wall.
