AUSTIN (KXAN) — MotoGP returns to Circuit of the Americas in October.

COTA officials made the announcement Wednesday via its social media platforms, and what’s referred to as the “Formula 1 of motorcycles” will speed around the track in the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas on October 1-3.

Last year’s race was ultimately canceled after being rescheduled from April to November due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The race at COTA is the only stop in North America on the MotoGP circuit this year. Tickets go on sale in July and you can sign up for alerts at COTA’s website.
