MotoGP at Laguna Seca 2005

MotoGP at Laguna

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

I am happy that Moto GP is coming to the US, but that track is to small for those bikes. Also it is too far from here.

Supersize it, its the american way

I just read somewhere July 8-10.
That puts it with SBK.

I believe there is some kind of regulation I believe where Laguna can only have so many big events a year.

Moto GP by itself? I don't want to watch endless practice Friday and Saturday. I know some would. The track is small and you won't get to see the top speed.


Yes, It will be crowded with practice and qualifying but its the best bang for the buck.

I had read this about a week ago. It addresses the combination MotoGP and AMA.

"Laguna Seca officials were at the Catalan GP for talks with Dorna the MotoGP rights holders. And the two parties have reached a verbal agreement that the California circuit will run a round of the MotoGP World Championship during July 2005. Laguna thus gets the nod over Alabama's Barber circuit. But Laguna will only run a MotoGP race, supported by AMA events, rather than the 250cc and 125cc GPs. Laguna last hosted a GP race in 1994."

Just reserved a room.

that is the damn reason why I was hoping it was on a different weekend. I wanted to see the 125 and 250 races too. Who the hell wants to see an AMA race as a support class? What a crock of shit.

I just reserved a room at the Comfort Inn in Marina. I stayed there last month for the WSBK. It is about 15 - 20 mintues to the track and downtown Monterey.

cannery row hotels

Seaside, CA hotels

I'm going to check out the Plazza hotel pricing, right in the middle of cannery row. I've always wanted to check that place out if I every stayed at a hotel there.

If you get a room, let me know what you come up with.
See you there!

If the airfare, hotel, and race ticket pricing doesn't turn out to be too ridiculously expensive, I'd like to go with a CLSB crew

then again, i imagine the price of these tickets are gonna be like if you have to ask how much, you can't afford it.

Little update....... It might NOT happen....


Quote:
Excerpt from Dennis Noyes' article on SpeedTV dated 08.17.04 reagrding the Jerez bankruptcy...

http://www.speedtv.com/articles/moto/motogp/12515/

"(Dorna is also hoping to return to the United States in 2005 but those plans have been complicated by another financial crisis and possible bankruptcy (though with debts of less that 5 million dollars) of the SCRAMP organization which promotes motor sport at the emblematic circuit of the Monterey Peninsula. Dorna has not yet announced firm plans to hold a USGP at Laguna Seca, but with RPM, the promoters of the Laguna Seca’s World and National Superbike race, now in the process of taking over SCRAMP’s debt (piddling by Jerez standards), the future of the summer classic at Laguna will soon be decided and the popular race will almost certainly continue either as a combined MotoGP-AMA world GP and national Superbike event, a combined World Superbike-AMA Superbike mix (as it has been from 1994 to the present) or even an AMA Superbike only race. The solid support from fans and the industry give the Laguna Seca date the basis for any one of these possible solutions, but RPM, seeing how both SCRAMP and now Jerez have both gone bankrupt, will seek to reduce fees and keep risk at a minimum. "

So this leaves the future of the proposed race still up in the air because as I see it SCRAMP has 2 rather large hurdles to overcome.

1. SCRAMP's 5 mil owed and possible bankruptcy
2. FIM's required track changes.

Dennis stated that RPM would take over SCRAMP's problems, but Dan Murphy of RPM states otherwise...

"Press Release from Dan Murphy (RPM) 08.19.04

I would like to announce that RPM will not return to Laguna Seca to continue to promote either a World GP or a World Superbike race in 2005. SCRAMP, the track operator has decided it in their best interests to run the race without us."

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

I saw this on the 600rr site. I have no idea where the information came from or if it is accurate, see below.

General admission, 3-day ticket: $90
General admission, 2-day ticket: $75 (sat/sun)
Paddock pass (good for 3 days): $25

Starting at 8am on October 25th, premier seating, grandstands and camping will go on sale. I believe they said camping is for all nights only and starts at $150 or so. Grandstand seats are going to be $10 for Saturday and $15 for Sunday.

I just called and was told that they are taking orders for general tickets. They do not have any premier packages available yet and when those are available they will be first offered to those who had premier tickets at last months Superbike race.
