Austin eases bumps with partial resurfacing

The US GP venue in Austin has moved to eradicate serious problems with the track surface ahead of the 2022 season. Franco Uncini, MotoGP’s safety director, says he asked for a full resurfacing ahead of the 2022 race – with some riders reportedly threatening to boycott the event if the situation isn’t vastly improved. The Circuit of the Americas has, however, just completed a partial “large-scale” resurfacing, covering the biggest problem areas between turns 2-10 and 12-16. A statement continued: “COTA worked with consultants to review asphalt designs and diagnose the parts of the track in need of resurfacing. “COTA also worked with contractors to ensure the new asphalt and concrete foundations were even and flush, creating an ideal track for upcoming races and events.”.
