MotoGP to debut in India

October 1, 2022

MotoGP has announced that India will be making its debut in the sport in the 2023 calendar. MotoGP will be heading to the Buddh International Circuit. The announcement was made by MotoGP series promoter Dorna.

The Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh has already hosted motorsports events in the past. The circuit hosted the Formula One Indian Grand Prix between 2011 and 2013. The race was later taken off the calendar following a dispute between F1 and the state government over tax issues.

Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO, Dorna, commented:

We’re very proud to announce that the Buddh International Circuit will be on the 2023 calendar. We have a lot of fans in India and we’re excited to be able to bring the sport to them. India is also a key market for the motorcycle industry and therefore, by extension, for MotoGP as the pinnacle of the two-wheeled world.

We very much look forward to racing at Buddh International Circuit and can’t wait to welcome the fans through the gates to see this incredible sport in person.

Anurag Thakur, Union Sports Minister, Government of India, said:

It’s a historical day for the sporting industry and a tribute to the 75th year of India’s celebration.

Yogi Adityanath, Chief Minister, Uttar Pradesh, stated:

It’s a matter of great pride for Uttar Pradesh to host such a global event. Our government will provide full support to MotoGP Bharat.

Nand Gopal “Nandi”, Cabinet Minister, Government of Uttar Pradesh, added:

This event will provide a major impetus to the economy by generating an influx of foreign investment in the state.

Pushkar Nath Srivastava, COO, Fairstreet Sports, said:

We are thrilled to get MotoGP into India and host this prestigious race. It’s a matter of pride that we are bringing this event on Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav.
