The last extra-European event of the early part of the 2018 MotoGP World Championship is around the corner, with Team Del Conca Gresini Moto3 looking for strong results at COTA in the Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas.

Last year’s edition of the US GP was the only chance – so far – to see the two Gresini riders together on the podium, with Martin second ahead of his team mate Di Giannantonio – with the latter only 19 thousandths of a second behind the Spaniard at the chequered flag. After the first two events of the season, which saw Martin dominating in Qatar and Diggia getting his first rostrum finish of the year at Termas, Austin will be the chance for both rider to continue bagging points, with the goal to return to Europe with the highest possible total.

Martin is currently second in the championship standings with 30 points, whereas Di Giannantonio is four points behind his teammate in fourth place.
