One of the most variable circuits on the MotoGP calendar, the Circuit of the Americas has become a major stop for every premier-class motorsport.
Why go to the 2024 Americas MotoGP?
For the riders of MotoGP, COTA's flowing esses, hard braking zones and long straights demand full focus throughout the 20-lap race. It’s a track that was previously dominated by multiple World Champion Marc Marquez, who took seven victories out of eight races between 2013 and 2021 at COTA.
Since then, Álex Rins (2023) and Enea Bastianini (2022) have denied the dominant Marquez glory at one of his favourite tracks.
With a capacity of 120,000 fans, the atmosphere at the circuit is second-to-none. A country with a rich heritage in motorsports, fans in Texas have taken to the racing with open arms and create an atmosphere unique to this part of the world. Tail-gating and BBQs are a big part of the culture in Texas, with the city of Austin renowned for its music scene, great food and larger-than-life attitude.
