Press Release
(2005 FIM Road Racing World Championship)
Tickets sold out for MotoGP=92s Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix

Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca officials announced last Friday that tickets for
Saturday, July 9th  and Sunday, July 10th of the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix are no
longer available for purchase through the circuit's ticket office. A very
limited number of general admission tickets will be available for sale at the
official 2005 Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix ticket outlets while their supplies
last.  Approximately 53,900 tickets have been sold to spectators for each of the
weekend days.

General admission tickets are still available for the practice day on Friday,
July 8th, the first opportunity for two-wheeled fans to see the MotoGP World
Championship in its first appearance in the United States since 1994.

"With almost 150,000 people expected to be here, next week's Red Bull U.S. Grand
Prix will be the largest event in the 49-year history of Mazda Raceway Laguna
Seca," said Gill Campbell, CEO/general manager of the historic track. "The
combination of MotoGP, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and the Monterey Peninsula has
proven irresistible.  Our phones have barely stopped ringing since we announced
the event last August."

Only once before has a sellout been announced at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. That
was the 1998 Rolex Monterey Historic Automobile Races with Porsche as the
event's featured marque. That announcement was not made, however, until after a
large walk-up crowd on Sunday of the event. Next weekend's Red Bull U.S. Grand
Prix marks the first time a sellout announcement has been made prior to the
event weekend in the 49-year history of the world-renowned circuit.
