Aprilia set to increase satellite support for Trackhouse Racing MotoGP debut


Aprilia Racing CEO Massimo Rivola says the manufacturer will ‘significantly increase’ its commitment towards its satellite arm following the arrival of new partners Trackhouse Racing.

The American outfit, which was originally formed to compete in NASCAR, was this week revealed to be taking over from RNF Racing to run Aprilia’s independent effort for the 2024 MotoGP season.

It takes over from RNF Racing after the Malaysian-flagged team had its entries confiscated over reported breaches of contract involving its title sponsor and primary shareholder, CryptoData.


While the vast majority of the team will remain unchanged to that of this year - with Miguel Oliveira and Raul Fernandez retaining their seats on the rider front - Trackhouse Racing represents a bold new prospect for both Aprilia and Dorna with its American connections.

Indeed, with now only one US-based race on the calendar - Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas - Rivola says Trackhouse Racing’s arrival and alignment with Aprilia in its most important motorcycle market is significant.

“We are happy and proud to welcome Trackhouse into the Aprilia Racing family. What they have been able to build in a very short time in NASCAR is an extraordinary presentation card, which anticipates the potential of this partnership. 

“This is thanks to Justin Marks and his team, whom I got to know through my long-time friend PJ Rashidi, and with whom we were immediately in sync both in terms of technical ambitions and marketing and communication developments in such an important market as the US. 

“Our commitment will increase significantly, a responsibility we gladly take on because, I am sure, it will allow us to grow even more.”
