CNN - Argentina ready for MotoGP™ invasion

CNN's Jonathan Hawkins, who regularly covers MotoGP™, has previewed the Gran Premio Red Bull de la Republica Argentina - as the World Championship returns to South America this weekend.

Hawkins writes, ‘The last time Argentinean fans heard the roar of Grand Prix bikes was in 1999, when current champion Marc Marquez was just six years old. Nevertheless, enthusiasm for the sport in these parts is clear. Spectators will be traveling to the circuit in Santiago del Estero, many by motorcycle, from across the country.’

"They have done a brilliant job," Carmelo Ezpeleta, Dorna CEO told CNN. "We felt a very warm welcome since the first time we started negotiating with them."
