Jerez extends MotoGP contract until 2011

The Jerez circuit, which is located in the south of Spain and offers some of the most compelling viewing on the World Championship calendar, will host MotoGP events at least until 2011, after the extension of its agreement with Dorna Sports. The announcement was made today at a press conference hosted by the Mayor of the city of Jerez de la Frontera, Pedro Pacheco, and Dorna's CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta.

Jerez has been a preferred venue of Grand Prix racing since its debut on the calendar in 1987, with regular record crowd figures of over 100,000 spectators on race-day. The last edition, in 2002, was watched by more than 200,000 fans over the three-day weekend and for this year's race, which takes place on May 11th, already a massive attendance is expected. The Spanish racetrack, famous for its unrivalled atmosphere, is the first of the circuits on the MotoGP calendar to secure its presence beyond 2006, with others already in talks with Dorna.
