Woodcliff Lake, NJ – April 11, 2018…BMW Motorrad USA will return to the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX for the MotoGP Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas Races, April 20-22, with plenty of trackside action and a distinctive display of BMW Motorrad Motorsports apparel.
In the vendor area, BMW Motorrad will showcase and sell its distinctive line of motorsports apparel. BMW Motorrad Motorsports advisor and factory roadracer Nate Kern will also be on hand with the new 2018 BMW HP4 Race, S 1000 RR and his winning R nineT Racer. Kern – a former CCS national champion – and Steve Weir – a certified BMW HP Race Engineer – will be advising hopefuls Danny Eslick and 19-year-old newcomer Jeremy Coffey, who will compete in race #2 of the MotoAmerica series on BMW S 1000 RR superbikes.
MotoGP, considered to be the fastest, fiercest motorcycle racing in the world, features completely custom speed machines, built purely for the GP series. Unlike motorcycles in other racing series, a MotoGP bike is built from scratch and does not share a single part with those in the retail showroom. Rivalries among MotoGP pilots run deep and battles on the track are intense. For more information about MotoGP racing April 20-21, visit: http://www.circuitoftheamericas.com/motogp
Also on tap the same weekend is The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show, sponsored by BMW Motorrad USA, featuring an inspiring showcase of works from builders and craftsmen that combine knowledge, skill, and ingenuity to create one-of-a-kind truly hand-built machines.
