MotoGP Back At Indy In 2014 (Update) UPDATE Yesterday's MotoGP Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix drew a crowd of 50,000 to Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and the track and MotoGP rights holder Dorna "think the ground is fertile enough for the event to grow." IMS President Doug Boles said, "It's a good community event, and the financial model isn't based on tickets sold. There's manufacturer activation, vendor participation, hospitality." Dorna and the track have "agreed to work toward a long-term contract."  Indy Star

08/18/13 The Red Bull Indianapolis GP will return to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a seventh consecutive year in 2014, with an expected race date in mid-August to be announced in the future.

Next year is the final year of the agreement between IMS and sanctioning organization and commercial rights holder Dorna to bring all three classes of the MotoGP World Championship – MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 – to the Brickyard. But IMS and Dorna have started discussions about a long-term relationship past the terms of the current contract.

“We’re very pleased that we can bring our fans another thrilling MotoGP World Championship race in 2014 at IMS,” Indianapolis Motor Speedway President J. Douglas Boles said. “The last six years have established a solid foundation for the Red Bull Indianapolis GP, and we are optimistic about the growth of the event in Indianapolis. We are also eager to continue working with our friends at Dorna to ensure an exciting, long-term future for MotoGP at The Racing Capital of the World.”

“I’m extremely pleased that MotoGP will be returning to the iconic Indianapolis track in 2014 to bring the pinnacle of motorcycle racing to the American fans,” Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta said. “The Brickyard not only attracts a great crowd every year, but its heritage and history in the world of motor racing also helps grow the popularity of MotoGP in the United States and around the world. I would like to thank the organization and staff at Indianapolis for their fantastic efforts to keep the race at their track, and I am already looking forward to returning next year.”
