The biggest event on the 2009 schedule, the fifth annual Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix, is set for July 3-5 and features the prestigious MotoGP World Championship. At the 2008 race, Tom Cruise along with 131,250 fans watched Valentino Rossi score his first victory on American soil. It was an epic battle between Casey Stoner and Rossi, with many changes of the lead and some very close racing. Rossi sealed his victory with a kiss, parking his bike in Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca’s legendary corkscrew, a series of turns with a 300 foot elevation change and kissing the pavement.

I was there this year, It is an incredible exeprience, I stayed for a week and rode Northern Cali, there is plenty of time, I stayed with a friend, so that was free and he provided me with bikes to ride every day, that was awesome, It is a trip of a lifetime, Do some research and good luck, U wont regret it, and U dont have to buy really high dollar tickets, ours were $100, for all three days and I got a paddock pass for $20, I know people who spent $600+ on tickets, thats just not necessary

Grandstand seating where you can see the jumbotron is the way to go for the race on sunday. If you don't buy grandstand seats a good place to watch is from the fence between turn 1 and 2, you can see a lot of the track from there. Like Flyin'Duc said be sure and get pit passes, I thought we paid $60 for them but definately the way to go. That will get you into pits where riders and unbrella girls hang out for pic's, and where most of the swag is.

There were people giving pit passes away after they came out and some guys selling them for like 10 or 20 after they came out, definately worth going in there, saw most of the racers, etc in the pits

You first and foremost priority is to find a hotel room but be prepared to get raped on hotel prices. All the hotels bump their normal room rates 300% the weekend of MotoGP. The last time I attended Laguna I found a Motel 6 east of the track for $59 per night but this was before the local motels removed themslves from online booking. The weekend of the event that same Motel 6 was charging $185 per night. If anyone you know has a timeshare check and see if they have an option in Monterrey or Carmel that they would be willing to rent to you.

The best grandstand seats I've owned are in Turn 4. I also did a couple years in the suite seating in Turn 3. You really can't go wrong with General Admission tickets and finding a spot on the hill and at the base of the cork screw.

Consider flying in to San Francisco or San Jose for better airfare options/prices.

If you have $200 to spare consider doing the rock star gig and take helicopter shuttle service in and out of the track. Do it one time and you will never sit in traffic for hours wiating to get in/out of the track again.

To be honest I will be hard pressed to attend MototGP at Laguna again after attending MotoGP at Indinapolis this year. Indy is a completely different experience. Friendly people, the Indy Mile flat track races, decent hotel prices, great facilities and years of experience moving very large crowds in and out of the track efficiently make the Indy MotoGP a much better overall experience that than Laguna.
