Shifting Focus
Moreover, for Alinghi Red Bull Racing, which has been training and testing in the waters off Barcelona for over a year, the first races begin 14 September 2023 at the America’s Cup Preliminary Regatta in nearby Vilanova i la Geltru. It will mark a clear shift in the campaign’s focus from training to full race-mode.

For Red Bull KTM Factory Racing, the upcoming 11th race of the MotoGP season takes place this weekend at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. With both teams preparing for these crucial showdowns, there was excitement all around as sail racers and MotoGP stars alike gathered at the new team base in Port Vell.

Looking The Part

On top of that, the day’s highlights included team’s KTM Factory Racing riders following a sailing session out on the water and the debut of the one-off racing liveries created by Spanish artist Javier Mariscal and inspired by a local landmark.

This was none other than the famous Warriors of La Pedrera, the proud statues that stand atop Antoni Gaudi’s iconic Casa Mila.  A well known and beautiful tourist location, this was the perfect backdrop for the team.Red Bull


Designed by Mariscal, who imagined the well-known Cobi mascot design for the 1992 Barcelona Games, the new warrior silhouettes appear on the foils of the AC40 yachts of the team and both teams were also surprised with a sneak preview of the warrior livery to be featured on the KTM RC16 race bikes this Sunday.
