According to the report from AutoCar India, the event is being christened the ‘Grand Prix of Bharat,’ and will be held at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC), with potential to start as soon as next year (though 2024 seems more reasonable, considering FIM has to approve of the BIC first).
“[It’s] a no-brainer for MotoGP to come here given that India is the world’s largest two-wheeler market,” states the report.
“MotoGP continues to earn new audiences and fans worldwide,” adds Dorna Sports’ managing director Carlos Ezpeleta.
“This makes it imperative for us to expand its presence to new destinations where fans and riders are growing every year.”
“India is key to our scheme of taking MotoGP to new frontiers.”
Thanks to a competitive grid and well-organized regulations, it’s also possible that MotoE will have a Bharat start – though nothing yet has been confirmed on that front.
