27 January 2024 – It was a stylish presentation of the American Trackhouse Racing MotoGP team in Hollywood, Los Angeles, on the evening of 26 January, ahead of the 2024 season that awaits them in MotoGP™. The independent team will have two Aprilia RS-GP MotoGP™ bikes on the track, entrusted to Miguel Oliveira and Raúl Fernández. In Los Angeles, Trackhouse Racing MotoGP™ unveiled the colours with which they will be racing - putting two Aprilia RS-GP bikes on the grid - in front of a select crowd of US racing legends.

Trackhouse Entertainment Group owner Justin Marks announced, back in December 2023, that his organization will field a MotoGP™ World Championship team in 2024, a move expanding its reach across the global motorsports world and building on its success in the NASCAR series. Six weeks later, the team pulled back the curtains on its two Aprilia MotoGP™ bikes, entrusted to 29 year-old Portuguese rider Miguel Oliveira and 23 year-old Spaniard Raúl Fernández.

Evoking a strong American theme in its livery, the team is aiming to represent the next chapter in the USA’s long and successful relationship with the premier class of road-racing – legends like Kenny Roberts, Freddie Spencer, Eddie Lawson, Wayne Rainey, Randy Mamola, John Kocinski, Kenny Roberts Jr. and the late, great, Nicky Hayden all blazed a trail that Trackhouse seeks to continue.
Miguel Oliveira is an established star in the MotoGP™ world. He marked himself out for future success in Portugal from his earliest days on track and has shown his prodigious talent and intelligence throughout the Championship battles he has fought in his career to date on the world stage. He currently boasts five race wins; his 2023 season was disrupted by injuries and in 2024 he aims to be a protagonist with his Aprilia RS-GP.

On the right, MotoGP™ birthday wishes for Miguel Oliveira, who turned 29 on 4 January.

Miguel Oliveira (bike no. 88): "I’m obviously super happy to be in the US launching this American team in MotoGP™. It’s a great pleasure to be a part of the Trackhouse family. I can’t wait to get started with the new season, new colours, exciting colours, very racy and competitive ones. I can’t wait to get on the new bike during the test in a few days and get the season started."

Raúl Fernández is one of the most exciting riders in the MotoGP™ World Championship. No rookie has shaken up the intermediate Moto2™ class like Raúl in 2021, when he blitzed the field with eight victories and only missed out on the Championship crown due to an injury. 2023 ended strongly with a top 5 finish and 2024 will be a year that Raúl looks to stamp his speed on the timesheets.

Raúl Fernández (bike no. 25): "The bike is really nice and it’s a great opportunity to show the American flag. I think it’s great that America will have a MotoGP™ team, so for me it’s a huge pleasure to be here and show this flag. I really like the US and its people. The presentation was just amazing. To be here in Los Angeles is just a dream! I’m really happy and have a great feeling for this season. I think I’ll enjoy it a lot. See you on track!"

Justin Marks: "This launch is an incredible moment. It’s the combination of an incredible amount of work that everybody at Trackhouse, MotoGP™ and Aprilia have put together in a very short period of time to make a little bit of magic happen. That’s basically in the space of two or three months, we set up a MotoGP™ team, ready to compete and to be able to do something great on the racetrack. We’ve got a group of people that are all very, very talented. It’s also special because we are an American team. We are a global brand, but an American company and to be able to celebrate the formation of this team and début these incredible bikes in an iconic American city like Hollywood is truly a special, special thing. I look forward to the season."

Frame from the MotoGP video interview:

"We don’t really know what to expect, I think as far as performance on the racetrack. All I know is that we’ve got great equipment with Aprilia, great people and very, very motivated, healthy and happy riders. It’s going to be a big learning experience for me and Trackhouse Racing, with a group of people that are very experienced in MotoGP™, two great riders, a bunch of great mechanics and incredible partners in Aprilia."


The key Partners joining Trackhouse Racing in the MotoGP™ World Championship are Aprilia Racing - the racing department for Piaggio Group -, Sterilgarda Alimenti, and GoPro.
