Red Bull Grand Prix 2013
The Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix is one of Monterey County’s biggest annual events, drawing 120,000 visitors to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. The Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix is the only MotoGP race in the world where fans can meet the riders and engineers, and that unprecedented level of access draws fans from Europe, Asia, and Australia to Monterey County. MotoGP fans could fill three days at the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix without ever seeing a race. The infield is loaded with shopping opportunities. MotoGP fans can load up on all kinds of souvenirs, while motorcycle riders can find everything from clothing to accessories and much more. On Friday over 200 fans will have the chance to take a few laps around the track with Kenny Roberts and Eddie Lawson as part of a special weekend ticket promotional package. The former World Champions will ride a special GYT-R equipped YZF-R1’s in celebration of Yamaha’s 50th Anniversary of World GP Racing. There’s also entertainment to be had everywhere on the infield, where the party starts the moment the gates open. A full slate of bands plays throughout the event.
