Dorna and MotorLand Aragón agree extension until 2016

Tuesday, 1 March 2011

Dorna Sports, MotorLand Aragón and the Government of Aragón today signed a new agreement which will see the Spanish circuit feature as a main venue on the MotoGP calendar until at least 2016.

Present at the signing this morning at the Headquarters of the Government of Aragón were Dorna CEO Mr Carmelo Ezpeleta, Vice President of the Government of Aragón and President of MotorLand Mr José Angel Biel, Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism and Vice President of MotorLand Mr Arturo Aliaga and General Director of the Aragón Institute of Public Works and CEO of MotorLand Aragón Mr Antonio Gasión.

As part of the agreement MotorLand was confirmed as a permanent circuit on the MotoGP calendar for the next six years, having initially been introduced as a reserve circuit for 2010 in which it eventually hosted the 13th round of the season.

For the first time in the history of the prestigious IRTA ‘Best Grand Prix’ award MotorLand won the prize in its first year in 2010, in recognition for being the best organised event on the calendar.

Last year’s event at MotorLand Aragón, which took place in September, was enjoyed by 116,000 people who attended the circuit across all three days of the Grand Prix, with 70,000 present for race day on the Sunday.
