MONTEREY, Calif. (July 14, 2011) Soar above the scenic Central Coast on route to the races with Specialized Helicopters charter service to and from the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix featuring the MotoGP World Championship at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on July 22-24, 2011.

Flights are available to and from Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca starting at $69 per person, each way. Charter service is available from most Bay Area airports including San Jose, San Francisco and Oakland. Helicopters can accommodate up to three passengers per flight.

MotoGP is the world's premier motorcycling championship, with a season of 18 Grand Prix race weekends in 14 countries bringing together the world's top motorcycle manufacturers like Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki and Ducati - plus an elite list of riders from every corner of the globe.

No other road course in the U.S. challenges these world champion riders with such a dynamic, heart pounding combination of 11 turns, dramatic elevation changes of up to 300 feet and the plunging blind Corkscrew turn that drops an equivalent of 5 1/2 stories.

The Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix is a festive family environment that provides nonstop action on and off the track. Yamaha is celebrating 50 years of Grand Prix Racing and there will be a spectacular collection of anniversary activities in the Yamaha Marketplace ranging from stunt riding exhibitions and rider talks, to learn to ride programs and a children's play area. Saturday night features a live performance on the GE Financial Stage by The Dirty Heads, who Rolling Stone named one of the Top Bands of 2010.

Specialized Helicopters features a team of dedicated pilots and a fleet of state-of-the-art Robinson helicopters. Please contact Specialized Helicopters at 831-763-2244 for charter quotes or log on to for more information.
