    I love Willow and Thunderhill. But that doesn't mean I understand why they made those particular choices.

    I have run on 5 of them. The non-track or light track car people I talk to recognize Laguna Seca more than any other track and always give me that "cool" look when I mention it. Overall, I found it to be a fun track to run with a lot of history and recognition...thus #1 on there list.

    My favorite photos on that list are Lime Rock and COA.
    Now that I kind of know my way around Sonoma, it is an incredible track. The level of difficulty in completing an 'excellent' lap is so high compared to pretty much anything else I've driven.

    It was amazing to drive Laguna as well. Thunderhill I still have only been to once, but it seems pretty challenging too.

    Laguna Seca is like America's Nurburgring, in terms of notoriety. I drove it a few times... IMO, not an overly challenging course, unfortunately.

    Sonoma and T-Hill... would love to run one day.

    Although, I saw a video of Oregon Raceway Park, that is an incredible looking track! Although doesn't seem fitting for this list, but...
    Just look at that roller-coaster set of turns!!!

    I don't entirely agree. I have been getting as much track time at MRLS this summer as I can in preparation for GT2 and T1 racing I qualified for at the SCCA Runoffs. The track is easy to learn, but almost every brake zone, turn-in and track out has subtle differences from other turns on the track. I am trying to master all of them.
    To the right of The Sheriff. Isn't everyone?

    Look more like a puff pice to me. With a bit of history to add to the accountability.IMHO
    That's not a Typo, I just can't spell no so well.
