    What is the history of track changes at Laguna Seca? I've heard about T10 being changed and then T5-6 awhile back. When were any changes done and what kind of impact did they have on lap times?

    Thank you,

    The track was originally 1.9 miles long. In 1986 the track was lengthened to to 2.214 miles by adding an infield section between turn 2 and turn 3. The current turns 3 and 4 are new, and the old turn 3 became turn 5.

    In 1996, the track became 2.238 miles long when a new turn ten pit entrance was built. Turn 10 was made into a sharper turn, and turn 11 was moved up, making the front straight slightly longer than before.

    Thank you. Exactly the info I was looking for.

    Were the 1996 changes end of year or begining?

    I'm pretty sure that the '96 season was run on the revised, longer track.
