Relive Marc Marquez's maiden MotoGP victory at Circuit of The Americas

There have been only two MotoGP races at Circuit of The Americas but only one winner: Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez.

Marquez scored his first-ever MotoGP victory at the Austin, Texas, circuit in 2013, a hard-fought victory over teammate Dani Pedrosa. The win made him the sport’s youngest-ever race winner at 20 years 2 months and 5 days old. He would go on to take the world championship that year, again as the youngest in the sport’s history.

Marquez will be gunning for a third victory this weekend at Circuit of The Americas, though he is sure to have strong competition from Pedrosa as well as Movistar Yamaha’s Valentino Rossi, who won the season-opening race in Qatar.

Marquez’s victory in 2013 is featured in the film “On Any Sunday,” which was directed by Dana Brown and produced and distributed by the Red Bull Media House.

The film highlights the passion and pageantry of motorcycle culture around the world, from MotoGP, flat-track dirt racing, Motocross, custom builders to enthusiasts who just love to ride.

If you’re looking for a taste of what’s to come at this weekend’s MotoGP Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas, take a look at the clip below.

Great seats are still available for the race, including in the grandstands at Turn 15 – which offer one of the best views throughout the circuit.

The three-day festival of motorcycles and motorcycle culture will feature non-stop two-wheel action, off-track entertainment including motorcycle, BMX and aerobatic stunt shows, the world's largest collection of Evel Knievel memorabilia and a post-race concert Sunday by American rockers Cheap Trick.

Three-day general admission passes start at $89, and reserved grandstand seats start at $59. Children 15 and under will receive a free general admission pass with a ticketed adult.
