Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is giving race fans a chance to ride a parade lap of the circuit with MotoGP racers.

The Monterey, Calif. track is offering a Grand Prix Special ticket for the United States Grand Prix, July 3-5. A $175 Grand Prix Special ticket includes three-day general admission and a Turn 4 grandstand seat for the Saturday and Sunday, and participation in a parade lap of the 2.238-mile circuit, led by MotoGP riders.

Yamaha, Honda, Ducati and Suzuki have already signed on to take part, with negotiations underway with Kawasaki, BMW and Buell. Grand Prix Special ticket-holders will receive a goodie bag from their favorite manufacturer and be allowed to park in brand-specific parking areas.

The first 500 Grand Prix Special tickets come with a limited-edition print of this image.Were delighted that the manufacturers are giving the fans this opportunity, says Gill Campbell chief executive officer and general manager of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. I think Im going to have to go and get a Yamaha for the weekend so I can ride around the track with Colin Edwards or Jorge Lorenzo. It just doesnt get any better than that.

The first 500 people to purchase a Grand Prix Special ticket will receive a limited-edition print of Fiat Yamahas Valentino Rossi and Ducati Marlboros Casey Stoner from the 2008 USGP.
