About the Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas
MotoGP is the biggest, baddest, fastest, loudest, wildest motorcycle racing in the world. MotoGP bikes are completely custom speed machines, built purely for the GP series. Unlike other motorcycle racing series, a MotoGP bike is built from scratch and does not share a single part with its showroom brethren. It's an exotic, 240-horsepower, fire-breathing beast that few men can wrangle. The MotoGP pilots are the fiercest competitors on two wheels. The battles are intense, the rivalries run deep and the fans are rabid.
MotoAmerica returns with MotoGP this year, bringing its unique style of wild and exciting racing. The series is reinvigorating motorcycle racing in North America with wall-to-wall action and unbelievable access to the riders and their machines.
The Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas will be the fiercest, most suspenseful two-wheeled racing weekend ever.
