MotoGP promoter Dorna has announced that it has struck an agreement for Finland to re-join the calendar from 2018.

Finland previously held a round of the championship between 1962 and 1982, firstly at Tampere before switching to Imatra.

MotoGP will return to Finland at the new 2.8-mile Kymi Ring, which is still under construction, for the 2018 campaign.

"The FIM MotoGP World Championship is set to reach new territory in Scandinavia, with Dorna Sports delighted to announce an agreement has been reached for Finland to join the schedule in 2018," read a statement.

"The new KymiRing track in Iitti is currently under construction, with the FIM and Dorna working in close collaboration with all parties involved for the circuit to be homologated in time for the 2018 World Championship season.

"Today's announcement that MotoGP is set for a return to Finland for the first time since 1982 reflects the global appeal and growing popularity of the MotoGP championship."
