RACING RETURNS TO AUSTIN
Gear up for the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas.
If you've been missing the roar of the engines and the thrill of the final lap, the wait is over - motorcycle racing is back in Austin. The 2013 Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas MotoGPTM Championship comes to southeast Austin's Circuit of the Americas April 19-21, and it's promising to be a weekend full of excitement and racing excellence.
The three-day event will be packed with nonstop, heart-stopping action, as daring and talented riders compete on cutting-edge motorcycles capable of going from zero to 60 mph in three seconds and topping speeds of 200 mph.
Located a few minutes from Austin Bergstrom International Airport, the Circuit of the Americas is a brand new, world-class racing facility built specifically to host the most prestigious racing events in the world. Its state-of-the-art, 3.4-mile circuit track will host MotoGPTM for the first time in 2013, but the facility already has a reputation as one of the world's premier tracks for this type of racing. The combination of fast straights, tight hairpin turns and a distinctive elevation change of 133 feet will make the motorcycle battles that much more thrilling, no matter your seat in the stands.
This is the second of 18 worldwide races in the 2013 MotoGPTM season, but it promises to be one of the most exciting. General admission, reserved seating, premium grandstand seats and VIP packages are available. Learn more at www.circuitoftheamericas.com/moto-gp.
