MotoGP™ returns to IMS with new-look course

Friday, 4 October 2013

For the seventh consecutive year, MotoGP™ will return to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS) in 2014 as the venue hosts the action on a new-look road course.

From next year onwards, the three classes will compete at the world-famous venue as they already have done in the events of 2008 to 2013, beginning on the renowned yard of bricks before continuing to circulate in an anti-clockwise direction. The 16-turn, 2.645-mile circuit will feature exciting new turn configurations and braking zones, creating more passing opportunities, while the entire infield section will be repaved to create a smoother surface.

“The MotoGP World Championship has added greatly to the diversity and excitement at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway since the inaugural event in 2008 and we're thrilled to welcome back the greatest riders on earth to the Racing Capital of the World next August,” says J. Douglas Boles, Indianapolis Motor Speedway President.

“The changes we're making to our road course will create even closer, faster competition for our fans at this unique, fun event that has become a vital part of our annual racing schedule.”

The Red Bull Indianapolis GP will now run one week earlier than it did in 2012 and 2013, on the weekend of 8-10 August. This year’s MotoGP™ race was won by Marc Marquez, while Tito Rabat and Alex Rins triumphed in the respective Moto2™ and Moto3™ categories.
