MotoGP eyes new global venues

Singapore, India, Abu Dhabi and the new Formula 1 venue in Texas are among MotoGP's expansion targets, according to series boss Carmelo Ezpeleta.

"We'll go to new countries, even though I think we must keep our European roots," said Ezpeleta in an interview with Motosprint. "For sure we don't want go on for long with five GPs in the Iberian Peninsula: five races between Spain and Portugal are too many."

"All the countries we are talking to are outside Europe," he said. "Singapore is designing a new track, India is already building one, Abu Dhabi is interested. Also, we are in contact with an American promoter who is planning construction of a circuit in Texas, where F1 will race too."
