If you like close competition, the Grand Prix of the Americas at the Circuit of the Americas is not going to be on your list of great races in MotoGP history.

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.

Since Circuit of the Americas joined the MotoGP Championship in 2013, only one rider has claimed victory there – Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez.

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.
