MotoGP races into Circuit of the Americas April 10-12, 2015. This three-day spectacular will feature riders from around the world as MotoAmerica makes its international debut as the new home of the AMA Superbike Series.
The Superbike Qualifying race will kick off the weekend around 5:00 p.m., following all practice runs. While enjoying the action-packed race schedule be sure to look out for demos by street freestyler, Aaron Colton, aerobatic demonstrations by Kirby Chambliss, and Moto Trials Professional, Geoff Aaron.

If you are looking for even more action, adventure over to Ducati Island, a special experience area featuring live shows and rider appearances, seminars, demos, shopping and more. Tickets for this experience include a 3-day reserved seat at Turn 12, a motorcycle pass for one lap around the circuit, a track walk with Ducati riders and other special gifts.
As the races come to a close Sunday evening be sure to stick around for the post-race show. The iconic 70s rock band, CHEAP TRICK, will be hitting the stage of the Austin360 Amphitheater to close out the weekend.
However, if you don't have a chance to make it out to the track, you can still get in on the action at the off-campus Handbuilt Motorcycle Show. The Motorcycle show will feature 110 custom and vintage motorcycles in addition to the The American Motordrome Wall of Death. Stop by Fair Market on E. Fifth St. on April 11 and 12 for this free event celebrating MotoGP weekend!
