Laguna Seca Raceway (Spanish for "dry lake") is a California raceway opened in 1957 in the bed of a dry lake. The current track is 2.238 miles long and has 11 turns. The racetrack features a multitude of racing exhibitions.

The course (or interpretations of it) is featured in several racing video games: the Gran Turismo series (including the bike version Tourist Trophy), Forza Motorsport, and the MotoGP series.

George Lucas used to race here before he got into a car accident and gave up racing for filmmaking.
