No Lacuna Seca in 2014

I hear Lacuna Seca is off the schedule for next year. No more cork screw.

Seems so they were saying it was because of safety?

Can someone bring me up to speed on this. Was there a incident at the corkscrew or what would cause such a decision. Last time I road the track it seemed a little intimidating going uphill and then dropping off into a blind left but that was years before they changed to the infield and these guys are pro's.

I cant answer specifically but as far as I know it wasnt the corkscrew but I think there was a major one at turn one. I think it is also a financial situation.

Re: No Lacuna Seca in 2014

I hope it gets worked out, the Corkscrew is certainly an iconic set of curves.

^^ See Rossi's pass a few years back, then an identical pass (almost identical) by Marquez as he ironically passed Rossi using the same place years later =P
