The MAGIC Telescope, now taking data with an energy threshold well below 100 GeV, will soon be able to take full advantage of the fast slewing capability of its altazimuthal mount. Exploiting the link with the GCN network, the MAGIC Telescope could be one of the first ground-based experiments able to see the prompt emission of Gamma Ray Bursts in the few tens of GeV region.
