End of an Era Moto GP Cancelled at Laguna Seca
Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix Statement
For 25 years, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca has served as the home for Grand Prix motorcycle racing in the United States, having staged 15 world championship Grand Prix since 1988. Unfortunately, and in spite of loyal support from fans, sponsors and media, there will not be a 16th U.S. Grand Prix in 2014.
At this time, the U.S. is only able to support two MotoGP events. The support provided by the states of Texas and Indiana make it difficult for us, as a not-for-profit, to currently compete.
Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca extends its gratitude to all those whose combined efforts made the U.S. Grand Prix such an iconic event; it took all of you fans, sponsors, motorcycle community, media, volunteers and, not the least, Dorna Sports. Our pledge to you is to work diligently to return the MotoGP World Championship to Monterey, Calif., in the very near future.
For more information please contact me at 831-242-8201.

I wonder how much hate mail the people are DORNA are going to have to sift through.....
We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.
