Buriram.- Despite the fact that the organizers of the championship stressed that the intention was to disembark in Delhi not before 2024, the latest moves to finalize the calendar for the coming course seem to have given rise to the possibility of anticipating the event, which will take place at the Budh circuit after the visit of those responsible for the championship to the region. After knowing the route that Formula 1 will take a few days ago, the MotoGP calendar is expected to see the light of day imminently.
However, the instability that prevails today in certain regions of the planet leads us to be cautious before assuming that the Indian Grand Prix will be held in 2023, especially if we take into account the steps that must be taken yet.
“We are very proud to announce that the Buddh International Circuit will be on the 2023 calendar,” said Carmelo Ezpeleta , CEO of Dorna, in a note.
“We have a lot of fans in India and we are very happy to be able to bring the sport to them. India is also a key market for the motorcycling industry and therefore, by extension, for MotoGP as the pinnacle of the two-wheeled world. We are really looking forward to racing at the Buddh International Circuit and can’t wait to welcome the fans.”
Thus, the last few days have served for those responsible for the World Cup to finish configuring what, a priori, will be the longest calendar in history, with 21 scheduled tests, even though there are two (India and Kazakhstan), pending to confirm later.
The entry of the test in Delhi leads us to think, most likely, of the possible exit of one of those that, a priori, should be part of the agenda. In that sense, it would not be surprising that the victim was one of the four tests that are held in Spain. It must be taken into account that the intention repeatedly declared by Ezlepeta , before the Covid, was to introduce a rotation between the five grand prix that take place in the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal). The chosen formula was to ensure entry into the calendar three times out of every five years.
