ADDITIONAL PADDOCK PASSES AVAILABLE FOR RED BULL U.S. GRAND PRIX
Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca Passes Will Be Distributed Through Random Draw
MONTEREY, Calif. (May 16, 2006) – Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca announced today the process for distributing an additional allotment of paddock passes recently released for the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix July 21-23, featuring the MotoGP World Championship and the AMA Superbike Championship. The random selection process will bring the total number of paddock passes sold equal to the 2005 event, the largest event in the history of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
Beginning Wednesday, May 17 at 8:00 a.m. (PST) and continuing through Tuesday, June 6 at 5:00 p.m. (PST), motorcycle fans may register for up to 6 paddock passes, equal to the number of general admission tickets that person has purchased. At the conclusion of the registration period, orders will be drawn and filled randomly until the allotment of paddock passes has been sold.
“The paddock pass level for the 2006 Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix was initially restricted, but we have now been given the ability to sell more paddock passes that will take us to the level of paddock attendance in 2005,” said Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca CEO/General Manager Gill Campbell. “Because of the high demand we anticipate for these additional Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix paddock passes, we felt the best way to distribute them is through this system. This should eliminate long wait times when calling our ticket office and make the process fair for all wishing to purchase paddock passes.”
All entries will require a valid credit card to enter the selection process. The card will not be charged, however, until that purchaser has had their reservation slip selected.
Purchases may be made on-line at www.laguna-seca.com/paddockpasses
or during normal business hours at (800) 327-SECA. Only one entry per person, per address, per credit card will be accepted. Duplicate entries will void all previous entries by that individual. Entries will be drawn at random beginning at 9:00 a.m. (PST) on Wednesday, June 7 by an Independent Contracted Auditor.
Complete rules are available at www.laguna-seca.com/paddockpasses
