Indy MotoGP Tickets

Tickets for the fourth annual Red Bull Indianapolis GP race to be held on Sunday, Aug. 28, 2011 are now on sale. The Indy MotoGP will feature an interesting mix of motorcycle racers.

2008 race winner and seven-time MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi is moving to the fabled Ducati Team in 2011 and will race on the 2.621-mile road course on the famous red bike after spending the last seven seasons at Yamaha.

2006 World Champion Nicky Hayden, from nearby Owensboro, Ky., will stay at Ducati as Rossi’s new teammate.

American Ben Spies, who won the pole this year as a rookie, is replacing Rossi on the factory Yamaha team as a teammate to 2009 Red Bull Indianapolis GP winner and 2010 MotoGP World Champion Jorge Lorenzo.

All three Americans racing in MotoGP in 2010 will be on the grid in August 2011 at the Indy Motor Speedway race, as popular Colin Edwards will remain at the Tech 3 Yamaha team and join Hayden and Spies in the motorcycle race.

American Kenny Noyes also will return to Moto2, one of the three World Championship classes competing at Indy on Red Bull Indianapolis GP weekend.

Race Day general admission tickets are available for the MotoGP, starting at $40 USD. All children 12 and under will be admitted free with an adult general admission ticket holder at both events.
