About the circuit
The first Online Challenge for the MotoGP™ eSport Championship is held at the legendary Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. Use the unstoppable talents of Marc Marquez on the Repsol Honda to race the Online ‘Time Attack’ session and set a world-best time in dry conditions.
The Circuit of the Americas is the first purpose-built Grand Prix facility in the U.S. near Austin, Texas, with a 5.513km track and a capacity for 120,000 fans. Construction of the impressive 1000-acre facility was completed late in 2012, with MotoGP lining up at the track for the first time in 2013. One of its more distinctive features is near 41m-elevation change with an impressive incline at the end of the home-straight followed by a sharp left. The circuit is one of the most varied on the GP circuit, with a mix of fast straights and tight hairpins, with most sections mirroring at least some part of a famous track around the world.
It was designed by well-known German architect and circuit designer Hermann Tilke. The driving direction is counter clockwise and has a total of 20 corners with 9 right turns and 11 left turns.
Remember, through each challenge period you need to prove your worth in the lower classes first. Beat the qualifying times and progress up to the next class. Want to skip straight to the premier-class? Record an exceptional lap time and get sent straight to phase 2 - the MotoGP™ Challenge.
