For the fourth-straight year, MotoGP headed to Austin’s Circuit of the Americas, a 3.4-mile circuit containing 20 corners and a challenging layout with multiple elevation changes that drive most racers insane.
Can anyone seriously stop Marc Marquez at Austin’s Circuit of the Americas? The Repsol Honda rider has dominated every MotoGP race since the Texan F1 circuit joined the MotoGP calendar in 2013, earning every victory from the pole. Marquez, who finished third at the season opener in Qatar and won last weekend in Argentina, wasted no time showing his strength at the 3.4-mile circuit containing 20 corners during the opening practice sessions Friday for the 2016 Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas.

It was an odd weekend at Termas de Rio Hondo during the Argentina round of the 2016 MotoGP World Championship. Between the unpredictable weather, the new-spec Michelin tire troubles, and dirty track, it was a huge challenge for the teams and riders.
Since Circuit of the Americas joined the MotoGP Championship in 2013, only one rider has claimed victory there – Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez. The now-23-year-old Spaniard was also a rookie in that 2013 season, and his first-ever premier-class win occurred at COTA, which was eventually followed by his debut MotoGP title that same season.
Besides not having any experience with the spec Michelin tires or Magneti Marelli ECUs at the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit, the 21-rider grid was greeted with inclement weather conditions in Argentina. Due to the issues associated with the weather, only 13 riders finished the race.
Since the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit joined the MotoGP Championship in 2014, only one rider has earned the pole – Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez. And the Spaniard once again completed this feat Saturday for round two of the 2016 MotoGP Championship in Argentina.
