Dorna Sports, commercial rights holder for MotoGP, is pushing to ensure Argentina will be present on the 2014 calendar. On Friday, it was announced by governing body the FIM that the country has missed the deadline for next season.
‘The Gran Premio de la República Argentina, which was set to take place at the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit early next year, has not been included in the 2013 calendar,’ explains a statement on the official MotoGP website.
‘On June 20th 2012, the Spanish government recommended that teams and riders sponsored by Repsol should not travel to the República Argentina due to safety reasons. Therefore, the celebration of the 2013 Gran Premio de la República Argentina remained under suspension until such recommendation would be kept in force.
The deadline for Dorna Sports, commercial rights holder of the MotoGP™ World Championship, to officially propose the 2013 MotoGP™ Calendar to FIM was November 18th. On November 20th, the Spanish government notified through an email sent to Dorna Sports the withdrawal of the above-referred recommendation, when the time for the Calendar presentation had already expired and therefore, there was no possibility to include a new MotoGP™ event.
Anyhow, Dorna Sports commits itself to include Gran Premio de la República Argentina on the 2014 Calendar and onwards, to be approved by FIM subject to the homologation of the track, which presumably shall take place within the first quarter of 2013.’
Dorna added that it recognises that those responsible for finishing construction work and ensuring safety standards are met have carried out their jobs successfully.
