could be a very, very long load at 28.8:
|The Vegacam (should it be "VegaKam"?) 8mm view to the crest at 7.|
| This is at the
1960 Times Grand Prix event, |
a month prior to the F1 race:
|A reverse perspective on the Six-Seven straight and the first third or so of Seven.|
is a great picture for me: I was flagging just out of the frame to the right.
The fellow behind the fence, light clothing with the "...eca" of Laguna
Seca on his body, is my brother, Don. He took some pictures here, and at some
place in the esses. I have yet to find them, but I will (I did; there are a few
of them on RIR Pics Page 3). |
More Don's pictures at Don's Photos and Don's Prints Pages.
The last half of Seven, and a view that shows a couple of mild elevation changes in the Seven-Eight straight. The whole straight is at least mildly uphill, but the degree of incline does increase at a place out of the frame to the right (8mm Vegacam view). It levels off just after the cut hill, and goes up a little more as it goes through the bend to Eight (as seen in the photo looking past the second Six apex).
There is a good view uptrack from Eight through the Bend To Eight in this page from an event program. In that picture the cut hill on the Seven-Eight straight is out of the frame at left. You can see the snack bar behind Turn Seven and to your right of it the phallic "cement plant" that is still there, between former locations of the Admin/Turn One track gate and the main spectator gate west of the Esses.
