AMA Pro Racing will continue to field its three support races for the Laguna Seca GP during the 2011 season. The announcement made about the 2011 season makes for the seventh consecutive season that AMA Pro Racing has supported the sole MotoGP race at Laguna Seca. Unlike the Indianapolis GP, the Laguna Seca GP runs without the 125 GP & Moto2/250 GP support classes.

With the announcement of the Moto3 series replacing 125 GP in 2012, there’s been some talk about whether the other GP series will make the trek out to California. The answer, at least for 2011, is no, but with only a one-year renewal on the contract, 2012 could be another story.

The 2011 Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix at Laguna Seca will host three classes of AMA Pro racing: AMA SuperSport, AMA Daytona SportBike, and AMA American Superbike in addition to the MotoGP World Championship. Laguna Seca GP will take place on July 22nd-24th, but we can expect the entire provisional calendar from the FIM later this month.
