Indianapolis to Host MotoGP Again in 2011

The MotoGP World Championship will return to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in August 2011, following an extension of the current agreement between the circuit and MotoGP commercial rights holders Dorna Sports. The fourth annual MotoGP event is scheduled for Friday, August 26 through Sunday, August 28.

“We’re thrilled to welcome back the stars and machines of MotoGP in 2011,”
said Jeff Belskus, Indianapolis Motor Speedway Corporation president and chief executive officer. “This is a unique weekend that our fans enjoy, bringing the international flavor and great action of MotoGP to the Speedway. It has been a successful race for the last three years, including a great partnership with Red Bull, and we are working hard to continue to grow the event.”

“The extension of the agreement for a further year allows all parties involved to continue providing a superb weekend of racing at Indianapolis next season,”
said Dorna Sports CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta, in a statement for the press. “It permits all possibilities to be explored at the end of 2011 when the current contractual agreement with the MSMA (Motorcycle Sports Manufacturers’ Association) and IRTA (International Racing Teams Association) is reviewed, as MotoGP continues to develop into a new era in the sport in 2012.”
