LOL.

In recent years, the surrounding area has been transformed into an exclusive and extremely wealthy community, filled to the brim with homeowners that have purchased land and transformed their patches of property into oasis-like living establishments, within earshot of a professional racing facility, that we once again remind you, has been there since 1957.


“It’s shocking, really” said Michael Smith, interim CEO of SCRAMP “when we received the call to meet with local homeowners, we assumed it was going to be yet another attempt to reduce noise but we couldn’t have been more wrong. It’s almost as if they realized that they built their lavish homes directly next to a race track.”

Smith’s assumption was in fact, correct and confirmed. A committee headed up by local tech entrepreneur and trust fund recipient Lance LaDouche came to the painfully obvious conclusion when his own complaints had come back to haunt him.

“I’d just put together this amazing 2002 Mazda Miata build because all my former frat brothers got into it. I mean, we really went full out on it, it’s got everything. Just everything. You can see the receipts and what I paid the guy, it’ll take on any bike. Learn to drive a Miata, you’ll see what speed and skill really means, not like a motorcycle. And just so you know, my name is pronounced La-Dooooew”


“But I did my first track day at Laguna Seca and got black flagged for noise. I couldn’t believe it and when I considered it, it’s because absurdly wealthy residents like myself, who have the means to live literally anywhere in the world, chose to live directly next to an extremely loud facility designed for motorsports. Suddenly it all made sense, but it’s like they say, it’s not until it affects you directly, you know?”

Here hoping!

April 2018 on the article and things don't happen overnight, but sounds like a done deal. I have not seen anything official from Laguna, but I have not been paying enough attention to their media releases and could have easily missed it.
