In a rather unexpected turn of events, MotoGP might be headed to India. No, this isn’t an out of date April fools joke. The biggest two-wheeled competition in the world, along with Motot2, Moto3 and even MotoE might be headed for Indian shores by 2024.
The news comes from a News 18 exclusive, which claims to have sources on the inside. The same publication also claims that the announcement will be made by Carmelo Ezpeleta, Chief Executive Officer, Dorna in a week’s time and that the feasibility of a MotoE race will depend on the racetrack being readied in time.
What particularly piqued our interest though is the fact that here’s also a second bit of confirmation which comes from a highly respected and credible source. British journalist, Mat Oxley, seems to have given the news his seal of approval, citing an insider source.
As far as the venue is concerned, everyone’s best bet seems to be the Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh – the same racetrack which hosted Formula One back in 2012. While we wait for an official update, here’s how the Indian twitter seems to have reacted to the news.
