It looks like there will be no more MotoGP madness at the Indianapolis International Speedway (IMS) in the future, if we are to believe Mark Miles, CEO of Hulman & Co, the company running the circuit.
It's definitely not MotoGP's fault, Miles says, but the over-focusing on other racing events, such as the Indianapolis 500 and IndyCar, leaving the premium motorcycle class racing series a bit in the shadow and seemingly not making enough money.

The NASCAR Brickyard 400 races are also at low attendance levels, but it seems like they will go on. For MotoGP though, the 2013 race might be the last one for an unknown period of time.

Miles also adds that the decision is not yet made, and the results after this year's round on August 18th will also be taken into account. In case things are not changing for the better, Hulman & Co. could end the MotoGP presence after the 2013 event, as it looks like the contract allows him this margin, before the official end in 2014.

We'll be all-eyes in late August, to see which way this will go. However, with Argentina, Brazil and Russia working hard to have their own MotoGP-sanctioned circuits, we might say this is the last chance to see MotoGP machinery in the Indianapolis paddocks...
