Woodcliff Lake, NJ – April 9, 2019…BMW will return to the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX for the MotoGP Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas Races, April 12-14, with plenty of on- and off-track action featuring its full family of M vehicles, BMW Motorrad Motorsports apparel, and opportunities to demo a range of 2019 BMW motorcycle models.
In the Fan Zone, 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 2020 S 1000 RR with M Package and the HP4 Race. Attendees visiting the demo area will have an opportunity to test ride a variety of 2019 BMW motorcycles.
This year marks the 21st season with BMW M as the “Official Car of MotoGP,” and the BMW M – MotoGP partnership will be evident on and off the track. The BMW M5 MotoGP™ Safety Car with BMW M Performance Parts will pace the race, and in the “Fan Zone,” a full family of M vehicles will be on display – from the all new Z4M40i and M2 Competition all the way up to BMW’s M5 Competition and all new M850i coupe.
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 12-14, visit: http://www.circuitoftheamericas.com/motogp.
