MotoGP will once again race in Brazil, when the paddock returns to South America in 2014.
Brazil last hosted the premier motorcycle class back in 2014, however 2014 will see a reutrn to the continent with races in both Brazil and of course Argentina.
The news broke this evening, with the MotoGP website reporting that, the event has ‘been pencilled in for the second half of 2014’ with all of the event subject to the Autodromo Nelson Piquet de Brasilia, receiving it’s FIM Homologation.
Valentino Rossi was in the country earlier this year with Yamaha for a promotional event, and the man who won in Brazil six times before the paddock left was happy to be back.
“It’s a great pleasure to be back in Brazil. I still have good memories of the GPs I rode here. Brazilians deserve a race, as their passion for MotoGP is without equal!”
Despite it seemingly making sense, Brazil and Argentina don’t look like they will be a South American double header, with Argentina earlier in the year than Brazil, but it all fits in with Ezpeleta’s plans of expanding the series, and having races outside of Spain and America with more in Asia and other expanding markets.
