Trackhouse Racing – ready for the home GP / MotoGP

Trackhouse’s Aprilia MotoGP customer team faces its first home weekend in Austin. Team owner and four-wheel racer Justin Marks is happy – but at the same time surprised.

The opening match of the MotoGP World Championship in Austin on the “Circle of the Americas” with a difference of 41 meters in length brings the new Trackhouse Aprilia squad home event for the first time. And Miguel Oliveira (29) and Raul Fernandez (23), US soldiers – the design of the bike even has elements of the American flag – have already completed a special plan in advance.

NASCAR demonstration stations were even held in front of the company’s Trackhouse building on Tuesday for visitors from Europe. Oliveira and Fernandez also met NASCAR ace Ross Chastain. In the feudal building, team owner Justin Marks then gave an inspiring speech of motivation to all the American and MotoGP employees.

Marks – a successful businessman – is beaming from ear to ear these days: “This is the event I’ve been looking forward to since we announced our entry into the MotoGP World Championship,” said the American. “Trackhouse is an American company, but we are an international brand. To welcome MotoGP to our country is very special.”

Marks reveals the special plan in front of the house doctor: “It was a good week with the MotoGP team at our NASCAR headquarters in North Carolina. But now it’s about us focusing on the race at COTA. Raul and Miguel have shown reliable speed this season and I think we have a great chance to fight for a good result this weekend.”

Marks continued: “We are making progress with the bike and the team at the moment. It would be very special if we could have a successful race event and I also know that we have the tools to do that here at the home race.”
Miguel Oliveira proved that the Aprilia RS-GP is conceptually no enemy of the Texas race when the five-time MotoGP winner produced one of his best races of the season at Austin 2023.
