Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix Ticket Payment Plans Available

MONTEREY, Calif. (March 27, 2008) - Does the looming threat of a recession have you thinking twice about expenditures? Prices at the gas pumps make you cringe? Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca has a ticket solution for the economically-minded MotoGP fan thinking of coming to the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix, July 18-20. Payment plans are available for all tickets ranging from single-day general admission to three-day Premiere tickets. Unlike current sales trends, ticket prices for the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix have remained the same since 2005.

Payment plans vary per ticket, so fans need to call the Ticketing Office at 1-800-327-SECA to discuss their options. Deposits as little as $25 for a single-day general admission ticket are all that's needed to reserve a ticket to the 2008 Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix.

"Times are tough right now, and people are being more careful about what they spend their money on," said Gill Campbell, CEO of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. She continued, "These payment plans allow MotoGP fans to hold onto their money longer, yet still experience this world-class event in person."

The biggest event on the 2008 schedule - the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix - attracted more than 140,000 fans in 2007. The 2008 event will include support races from the Red Bull Rookies Cup and AMA Superbike.

Information on ticketing plans is only available by calling 1-800-327-SECA. Regular tickets are available for purchase online at www.laguna-seca.com and www.ticketmaster.com.

Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca was established in 1957. The world-renowned raceway has been operated since its inception by the Sports Car Racing Association of the Monterey Peninsula (SCRAMP), a not-for-profit 501C(4) corporation. Each race season, SCRAMP donates its net proceeds to the volunteer groups that help put on the races.
