Earlier this week we were blessed with the opportunity to burn Pirelli rubber at Austin, Texas’ freshly paved Circuit of the Americas racetrack aboard Ducati’s 1199 Panigale R (read more about in the 2013 Ducati 1199 Panigale R First Look). Words can’t describe how amazing this facility is. From the exquisitely manicured pavement to the garages and paddock facilities, Circuit of the Americas offers world-class experience that is superior to many top-level European tracks we’ve ridden at. This is one of the finest racing circuits in the world. In an effort to share the experience we assembled a quick hot lap video with our new GoPro HD Adventure Hero 3 Black Edition video camera. Like the ultra-high-tech Panigale, the GoPro features the latest image processing technology to deliver video that is clearer and offers better resolution than many professional-grade cameras that cost thousands of dollars more. Remember to visit Motorcycle-USA.com on Monday for another video and a more in-depth test of Ducati’s latest sportbike.
