Motorcycles take to the COTA track

Elgin 1-29-13

Austin (KXAN) – Some Austin motorcyclists got to take a lap around the track at the Circuit of the Americas on their bikes.

It was part of a Moto GP viewing party the track hosted this weekend for the race in Qatar.

About 120 of them got to take part for free.

“All I had to do was to go and confirm it, telling them how many people I wanted to come to with me and that was it,” said Luca Reck, one of the lucky riders. “Very simple. This morning, great crowd. I was happy to be here and see that they make it so simple. All the bikers are ready to go and it’s nice.”

The Circuit of the Americas will host its own Moto GP race in about three weeks. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
