MotoGP will visit the Circuit of the Americas this weekend for the Grand Prix of the Americas in Texas.

The track is much loved by Marc Marquez, who is the most successful rider at the circuit, having won the race seven times since the event first started in 2013.

Only two other current riders have also claimed a victory during the Grand Prix of the Americas - Alex Rins for LCR Honda in 2023 and Suzuki in 2019, and Enea Bastianini for Gresini Ducati in 2022.

The race was moved to the third round of the 2024 schedule following the cancellation of the  Argentina GP due to public spending cuts in the country.

Last year’s race was won by Alex Rins for LCR Honda, making him the first rider beside Marc Marquez to win for Honda since Cal Crutchlow took victory at the 2018 Argentine Grand Prix.
