Aesthetics – The Corkscrew

Mike Burroughs

The Corkscrew: perhaps the most famous turn in all of racing. For years, I've been attending races at the famed Laguna Seca circuit, and I've hiked the track's perimeter more times than I can count. I've hunted for photographer's nooks and crannies, having been met with both resounding success and utter failure. Time and time again, though, I return to the hill and settle in: it just can't be beat. It's a photographer's dream: cars and dynamics change wildly over the course of just a few hundred feet of track. Elevation plummets, speed rises and falls, and tires are pushed to their limits, all with seemingly endless angles for a keen eye and a sharp lens. Today, I dove into the 2019 Historics folder and picked some favorites. Enjoy the aesthetics of Laguna Seca's famed Corkscrew.
