Improved fan access for the 2009 Laguna Seca MotoGP

The fifth annual Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix featuring the prestigious MotoGP World Championship is set for July 3-5. The biggest event on the 2009 schedule will offer unprecedented access and opportunities to race fans attending the race.   They can be in the pits, in the paddock and experience the celebratory spraying of the champagne at the podium ceremony and, a first for MotoGP anywhere, to watch practice and qualifying literally on the front straight in the "Rev Limiter Zone."

The newly defined paddock features a high-end restaurant/bar, seating area and a terrace to watch all the MotoGP paddock activities and is open to all paddock pass ticket holders during the entire race weekend. A limited number of paddock passes are available for $50 and must be purchased with a three-day general admission ticket.

Fans with three-day general admission tickets and paddock passes will be able to experience on Friday, July 3 the MotoGP Pit Walk, which will take place between 11 a.m. -1 p.m. Lucky fans will be able to see what goes on inside the MotoGP pits and garages up close and personal, and it is expected that some of the star riders will be meeting fans and signing autographs.

Also new for 2009 and never before offered Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix fans is the "Rev Limiter Zone" where they will be able to watch MotoGP practice and qualifying on Friday, July 3 and Saturday, July 4 just a few feet away from the race track on the start/finish straight. "Rev Limiter Zone" passes are available for fans with a paddock pass as an upgrade for $50 per day.

Another addition for 2009 is the "Track Invasion" for the winner’s circle MotoGP podium ceremony. All paddock pass holders are invited to "invade" pit lane to watch winner’s circle ceremonies and enjoy the traditional champagne shower.

Please call the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca ticket office (800) 327-7322 for more details.
