Trackhouse Racing announces MotoGp landing with Aprilia

For a couple of days a countdown had been camping on MotoGp social media, anticipating a "special announcement" punctually arrived on Tuesday afternoon: the MotoGP and the premier class welcome Trackhouse Racing, an American brand that will curate, in place of RNF, the satellite team of Aprilia, with Raul Fernandez and Migual Oliveira at the helm of the bike of the House of Noale.

The American soul of the new team, whose managerial point of reference is entrepreneur and racer (on four wheels) Justin Marks, is underscored by the bike's stars-and-stripes livery, which stands out on the entire surface of the fairing. The official announcement on MotoGp channels had been anticipated precisely by a post on 'X' of the official Trackhouse Racing trophile, which spoke of a "switch to two wheels".

Trackhouse was born as the entrepreneurial-sporting idea of Justin Marks and American artist, of Cuban descent, Pitbull (born Armando Christian Perez). As far as four-wheelers are concerned, the team è has been present since 2021 in Nascar’s top series, the Cup Series, in which it collected six successes in the first three years of activity (three with Ross Chastain, one with Shane Van Gisbergen and one with Daniel Suarez).

MotoGp thus confirms eleven teams at the start for 2024: two will be under Aprilia (Aprilia Racing and Trackhouse Racing), four under Ducati (Ducati Lenovo Team, Prima Pramac Racing, Gresini Racing MotoGp and VR46 Racing Team), two under Honda (Repsol Honda and LCR), in addition to the factory teams KTM (joined by the GasGas brand) and Yamaha.
