SBK, Laguna Seca in trouble: it owes $2 million to Dorna!
The legendary Californian track is full of debts, including the $2.2 million monster figure to the World Superbike organizers.

Do you know the 'Corkscrew'?, the mythical downhill curve of Laguna theatre of the overtaking of Zanardi, Rossi and Marquez? Well, increasingly difficult to see other stunts in that place since the company that manages the track is full of debts.
For example, the Monterey Country Weekly, the nice $2.2 million at Dorna. Debt that, at the moment, hasn't been paid***.
The reality is that the Californian circuit would need urgent investments for the reconstruction of the asphalt and the pits, but no one takes care of it, while the management - it seems - collects a salary of 250,000 dollars a month!
We will keep you informed.

***The DORNA debt was owed by the former management company SCRAMP for races prior to 2017. It does not have anything to do with the current management company that took over January 1, 2020, or the County of Monterey which had paid WSBK sanctioning fees after 2017.
