Default Leguna **** screw in Richmond

I find that one of the exit of the new bridge connecting Richmond Bridge Port to Sea Island kind of resemble turn 8 at Leguna Seca... perfect for 4-wheel drift down with 180 degree directional change. I want to thank that hiway engineer in person...

That turn doesn't resemble the corkscrew in any shape or form. The entry turn sort of, but this one tightens up way too much and goes into a 180 degree turn. And good luck drifting there...I'll only try it in the snow at SUPER slow speeds...anything faster than 15km you can go play by yourself. Heh.
