    ESPN readers have selected Laguna Seca as the dream venue for a future Formula One race, beating out a return to Watkins Glen and the prospect of a New York street race. Pittsburgh Steelers Jerseys .Ahead of this weekends U.S. Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas, ESPN asked for readers to vote from a list of ten prospective venues?-- some likely F1 destinations and others slightly more optimistic. Laguna Seca, the California-based circuit featuring the famous, downhill Corkscrew, claimed a comfortable victory with over a quarter of the votes.The legendary track has previously been used by IndyCar and Moto GP but never F1. One famous moment in the circuits history is from Alex Zanardi, the former F1 and IndyCar driver who is now a multiple Paralympic champion, and his brilliant overtake of Bryan Herta at the Corkscrew chicane in a 1996 CART event.Laguna Seca beat New York circuit Watkins Glen, which hosted F1 between 1961 and 1980. Despite long being on top of Bernie Ecclestones wishlist, New York itself has to settle for the final step of the podium in third. A race in Sin City may well come true in future, with a preliminary contract reportedly in place, but Las Vegas was only the fourth most popular choice among those who voted.Long Beach, Miami, Road Atlanta, Daytonas 24-Hour configuration, Sonoma and Virginia International Speedway all came in with less than 10 percent of the vote.?Over to you, Liberty Media...Results in full below:Laguna Seca -- 26 percentWatkins Glen -- 18 percentNew York -- 16 percentLas Vegas -- 13 percentLong Beach - 6 percentMiami, Road Atlanta - 5 percent?Daytona (24-Hour configuration), Sonoma - 4 percentVirginia International Raceway - 3 percent Cheap Marcus Allen Jersey . Just as Montreal was settling into the first full working week of a new year, the Impact announced the appointment of their new head coach. Cheap Joshua Frazier Jersey . -- If this was Aaron Gordons final home game at Arizona, and it almost certainly was, then he went out in style. http://www.steelersjerseyscheap.com/ . -- Nate Robinson has played for seven teams, so beating one of them is no longer a rare occurrence. Mitchell Johnson at the WACA. For the better part of a decade, this was one of the most watchable parts of Australias home summer. Johnson was quick anywhere, but something about Perth brought his threat to a new level, even in the years when the WACAs typical pace and bounce suffered a lull. Nowhere did he take more Test wickets than the 45 at 22.77 he claimed in Perth, and his best work there came against South Africa.Johnson was back at the WACA on Wednesday, 50 days out from the ground hosting South Africa for the first Test of the Australian summer. But this year, South Africas batsmen will not have to worry about the threat of Johnson running in on a zippy pitch with a breeze to help him swing the ball. And yet another left-arm danger could be just as effective, if not more, when the home summer begins: Mitchell Starc.Johnsons retirement during last season stripped 313 wickets from Australias Test attack, but the transition to a post-Johnson era has been smooth. That is largely thanks to Starc, whose swing, pace and mastery of the yorker have made him one of the most challenging fast bowlers in world cricket at the moment. If Australias recent series in Sri Lanka was a disaster it was not because of Starc, who topped Australias wicket list with 24 at 15.16.It was the highest series tally ever by a visiting fast bowler in Sri Lanka, and it was followed, in the one-day series, by Starc breaking the world record for reaching 100 ODI wickets in the fewest matches. Australia will be greatly looking forward to seeing what Starc can achieve during the six home Tests this summer, after he missed the second half of last season due to an ankle injury that required surgery and a long recovery.It was really exciting to see Mitch Starc perform well, Johnson said in Perth on Wednesday. I thought he was really close when we went over to England for that last Ashes series, and wasnt quite there. But hes shown that after his injury hes really committed to working really hard and did all the work. Ive kept in touch with him and he was really positive going into that series. To be the leading wicket-taker in Sri Lanka in those conditions was a real positive and a good step forward.He can dominate again [at home] on wickets that are goingg to provide bounce, and with his height, its going to be very difficult. Cheap Terrell Edmunds Jersey. . He bowls the fuller ball, gets the ball up there, and especially on a wicket like the WACA where it can get good bounce, its really vital to be up there. Hell swing the ball when he pitches the ball up.That yorker hes got is very dangerous. Hes always working to improve his game. Hes still pretty fresh in Test cricket. Hes only going to get better. Hes going to keep breaking records, I think, as well. Its really exciting to see him play really well.The first Test against South Africa will be Australias first in Perth since Johnson farewelled Test cricket there last November. The three bowlers who rounded out Australias attack alongside Johnson in that match - Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Nathan Lyon - have continued to steer Australias Test bowling with success since then.Its nice to be able to finish and have him performing in the line-up that Australia have, Johnson said of Starc. Its a pretty inexperienced bowling line-up. Theyve got Nathan Lyon there, whos got plenty of experience spin-bowling, and Josh Hazlewood is still trying to find his feet. Theres always going to be pressure on him to be like a [Glenn] McGrath.But I think weve got a really good bowling line-up at the moment, and its really well-balanced. Those guys are really tall as well, so in these conditions theyre going to be really difficult to play. Coming up against South Africa at the start is really going to test Australia. But the bowling is really good at the moment. Im really happy where its placed.Johnson, like the current Australians, is less happy with where the team is placed on the Test rankings - No.3 after losing top spot in Sri Lanka - but it is also a time of change for South Africa, who are currently ranked fifth.South Africa are going through a bit of a change at the moment but there are a few guys that have just come into really good form, Johnson said. Dale Steyns back in form, Morne [Morkel] is floating around there as well, and theyve got a great batting line-up as always. Australia have always competed very hard against them.
