Turn 18 renamed Hayden Hill in honour of Nicky Hayden

The ‘Kentucky Kid’ remembered at the Circuit of the Americas

After the sad passing of 2006 MotoGP™ World Champion and MotoGP™ Legend Nicky Hayden in 2017, the tributes to the ‘Kentucky Kid’ have been many. Now, Turn 18 at the Circuit of the Americas has been named Hayden Hill.

Hayden raced at the venue in MotoGP™ in 2013, 2014 and 2015 before his move to WorldSBK, and added some solid finishes at COTA to his two incredible Grand Prix wins taken at Laguna Seca in 2005 and 2006.

Ride on, Kentucky Kid – at the Circuit of the Americas, his legend will.
