MotoGP calendar to include Brno until 2020
Dorna have secured the Czech Grand Prix for the next four years
THE Czech Grand Prix is to remain on the MotoGP calendar at the Automotodrom Brno until 2020.
Dorna Sports and the Czech Grand Prix Association in Brno signed a promotion agreement in January in regards to the Grand Prix of the Czech Republic which takes place in Brno.
The newly signed agreement ensures that Grand Prix motorcycle racing will be held at the Brno Circuit until 2020.
Dorna Sports Chief Executive Officer Carmelo Ezpeleta explained: 'The signing of this agreement is one of the most important acts as far as the World Championship of Motorcycle Road Racing is concerned.
'It is very important for our company, which arranges those races, that the Brno Circuit is a part of the championship for the following years. This agreement deals with all the unresolved questions about the holding of races in the past.'
Brno hosted its first Grand Prix back in 1965 and this year's Czech Grand Prix is set to take place on 21st August. It forms the second half of a double-header with a new addition to this year's calendar - the Red Bull Ring in Austria.
'A year ago, not only was it hazy outside but the future arrangement of Grand Prix was hazy as well. I am glad that we have found a way to arrange MotoGP in Brno,' said the Mayor of the City of Brno Petr Vok?ál.
'The breakpoint was the last year’s agreement to establish the Association, which would have public support. I would also like to thank Mr Ezpeleta for his extraordinary patience, which enabled the conclusion of the agreement. Now, it guarantees that Moto GP will be held in Brno for next 5 years.'
