WSBK Laguna Seca: Baz prepared for Laguna Seca bow

Loris Baz is preparing himself for his Laguna Seca debut, the WSBK title contender expecting it to be 'more or less like Portimao'.
Loris Baz is hoping his good form at Portimao will prove a positive indication of his form at Laguna Seca as he prepares to make his first visit to the Californian circuit.

A back injury ruled Baz out of last year's event – which returned to the WSBK calendar for the first time in nine years in 2013 -, the young Frenchman thus destined to be on the initial back foot as he learns his way around the iconic venue.

Despite this, Baz is excited about the prospect of tackling Laguna Seca and is confident the similar characteristics of the undulating Portimao circuit puts him in good stead for his bow.

“We have America next, just a few days after Portimao,” said Baz, who was a podium winner in Portugal. “It is going to be cool because it is the first time I have been to Laguna Seca and I cannot wait to see the track. I know it is amazing already. I have to learn the layout but I sure it will not be a big problem.

“I am sure we are going to make something good there because it seems more or less like Portimao, up and down, and we have found some positive things for this kind of track. I am sure I am going to like Laguna Seca.”

re: "I am sure I am going to like Laguna Seca.” we are about to turn that frown upside down pal...! :) if you're up for it, see if you can also make it out with the crew friday or saturday night to the pubs/bars on Cannery Row. hey, the grandprix guys do it, and what are they, special. it's a cool scene. you're going into break so time to relax, yes...? ps: recommend the tri-tip sandwich. it's a Nor-Cal thing. also, the 2 best places to overtake is under hard braking at the final left hander T11, and of course T8... top of the Corkscrew. :) you can do it on the straight (which is not so much a straight as it is a dog leg), but you gotta have the drive or else you'll run out of room QUICK into T1. the rest is at your discretion. but be careful with all that. it's a double edged sword. T8 and T11 are "kill boxes" were the others are going to equally be looking to line YOU up in the crosshairs. the advice you've just be given everybody else ALREADY knows, but now you do too.
