Brno extends MotoGP contract until 2013

Wednesday, 5 November 2008

MotoGP will return to the Czech venue of Brno until at least 2013, thanks to an extension of the current agreement between the circuit´s owners and World Championship´s commercial rights-holders Dorna Sports.

It is a two-year extension deal on a contract which already covered the period up to 2011, meaning that MotoGP visits to Brno are assured for at least the next five years.

The Brno date is highly popular with the riders and supporters alike, and this year in August the Czech event was attended by massive crowds of nearly 240,000 over the course of the weekend.

The first ever Grand Prix held at Brno was in 1965 on the original 13.94 km long road circuit, with the current circuit introduced in 1987 and used every year since then with the exception of 1992.

In 2009 the Grand Prix Ceske Republiky will be held at the historic Brno track from 14th to 16th August and the event will be the 22nd time that the current circuit has hosted a Grand Prix.
