TAKING IT HOME: Ben Spies will be able to shine in front of his homecrowd now that the Austin Circuit has been added to the list of MotoGP hosts.

The United States is set to host three MotoGP races during 2013. Championship organisers Dorna announced the Austin circuit in Texas will be hosting a race on April 21, 2013.

ONE CATEGORY

Like the United States Grand Prix in Laguna Seca, California, the event will only feature a MotoGP category race, whereas, the third of the American races, the Indianapolis Grand Prix, involves all three categories – MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3.

The race will see Ben Spies, a fellow Texan, in his first season on a Ducati after moving from Yamaha.

All in all there are 19 Grands Prix scheduled for 2013, including a return to Argentina.
