About The Circuit Of The Americas

With so many tracks across the US, it’s hard to believe that the Circuit of the Americas is the first purpose-built GP facility. Since 2013, it has been a fixed value on the MotoGP calendar, and despite having the same winner in the MotoGP class since then, the counter-clockwise track with its bumps and varied turns is always the backdrop for great races. Get ready for 5.5 kilometers (3.4 miles) of pure mayhem, lap after lap.

Although historically the Circuit of the Americas doesn’t favor the Ducatis, we’ve seen enough changes made this season to be confident that this may not be a certainty anymore. Last year, Danilo struggled during qualifying but managed to fight back into the top 10.

With a solid start in the 2019 season, and with a fifth spot in the championship, he looks determined to make the 2019 Austin GP one to remember!

About this page

“We had a great fight with the top pack in Argentina. I was looking for the podium before I had to settle for sixth. Also, after what happened in the last lap, I am happy to have stayed on the bike.

We made some mistakes during qualifying, but we managed to give it our best on race day, and for the Austin GP, we will be looking for that little extra we need for me to be where I want to be!”

Disaster struck for Augusto Fernández in Argentina, where he crashed during practice despite doing so well all weekend. With Augusto ruled out for the race, and Steven Odendaal still not fit, the Moto2 honors fell on the shoulders of Bo Bendsneyder.

He defended our colors successfully, and with a speedy recovery wished to both Augusto and Steven, we hope to have our intermediate class team in full force soon!

About this page

“It was a tough race, especially in the beginning. My start wasn’t great and was much better in the training sessions. I lost a few places at the start and on the straight. Catching up was very difficult and that made it even harder. I continued to focus on myself and on staying in contention. That was the number one target.

The fact that I was able to grab two points with that is great and I am very happy. We know what we need to improve for the upcoming races and I am confident that NTS and the team will solve that well, as always.”

“Things were going so well in the beginning of the weekend, and then the crash happened and I ended up with a broken arm… I don’t know what to say other than this is racing.

However, my surgery went well and I am working hard to get 100% fit again. I can’t wait to be back on track!”

Jaume Masià had a very unfortunate start to the season, but he managed to bounce back in champion-worthy style. Not only did our Spanish youngster claim his first ever pole-position, he became the first REV’IT! rider since 2015 to win a Moto3 race!

Classmate Lorenzo Dalla Porta got pushed out in the last lap, but a strong seventh place finish means closing the gap to the championship lead to two points, with Jaume directly behind him in P3.

About this page

“After the race in Argentina all I thought was, wooow, this can’t be real, this can’t be true... I have no words. I feel like it’s just a dream and I am about to wake up. All these years, all the effort, travels, circuits... and finally this. Simply amazing.

Thank you all, thanks to everyone who now, and in the past, has helped me. This gives me more strength to keep on going. I don’t want to wake up, but maybe I wake up on Sunday in Austin again with a similar feeling!”

About this page

“The last lap was incredibly busy. So many riders close to each other. I was getting ready to line up for the podium and then I had contact with another rider so I had to forget about the podium…

However, we are still second in the championship and we will be stronger in Austin again. Bring on the next race!”
