Laguna Seca. It's a favorite of the GP riders and the fans as well. In a 2013 season that has produced weather drama, crash drama, injury drama and tire drama, Laguna doles out just plain great racing, year after year. It's also the home of the biggest, most ambitious Ducati Island anywhere in the world and for me, 4 days of beautiful, "Kodak moments" all ringed in Ducati Red. Join me for a look at Laguna Seca MotoGP and especially, the people, bikes and passion, of Ducati Island Laguna Seca!
