Laguna Seca Lawsuit Settled

HOME » Magazine » » » Laguna Seca Lawsuit Settled

A comprehensive settlement that ends the Laguna Seca Raceway lawsuit, Highway 68 Coalition vs. County of Monterey, has been announced (see our March issue).  The settlement clarifies the long-term plans of Friends of Laguna Seca, the non-profit organisation that runs the racetrack within a wider Laguna Seca recreational area, to conduct a previously planned sound impact assessment and carry out appropriate sound mitigation measures. 

“FLS is pleased that the litigation was dealt with quickly and we’re looking forward to our next steps toward Laguna Seca’s long-term success for the benefit of the community of Monterey County and the entire racing world,” said FLS President Ross Merrill.  “We know these improvements will take time, but we are committed to ensuring the success of Laguna Seca for decades to come.  The County and Friends of Laguna Seca want to especially thank the loyal fans of the racetrack and the public who voiced their overwhelming support for the County in this lawsuit.”
