MotoGP is likely to make India's Debut in the winter of 2023

   Sep 23,2022

In the winter of 2023, MotoGP could come to India if all goes on as expected and give a lift to the stagnant motorsport condition in the country. The master agreement could be expected to sign soon between Noida-based race promoters Fairstreet sports and MotoGP commercials rights owner Dorna.


CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta and Dorna MD Carlos Ezpeleta will be present in Delhi on Wednesday where they are supposed to officially announce “Grand Prix Bharat”.

Most probably the round is going to be held at Buddh International Circuit, which was once home of the Formula 1 Indian Grand Prix but was suspended due to monetary, tax, and bureaucratic obstacles.

After the agreement is signed between race owners and MotoGP rights, the FIM homologation of the track will be done. 

PushkarNath, COO of Fairstreet Sports, speaking to PTI said they have gotten their work done for the association of the great profile race, after considering what went wrong with Formula 1 a few years back.

Nath said “India is the biggest two-wheeler market. MotoGP is among the most watched games. We have taken all the measures to guarantee we can race in India for an extensive stretch. We are hopeful for the winter round next year.”

President of the Indian motorsports federation FMSCI, Akbar Ebrahim, invited the development. “I told that talks were on between parties. I also had a word with race promoters who are aware of what they are doing and what is expected to pull off an event.”

Ebrahim further said, “I hope agreement between Fairstreet and Dorna is signed soon and support of government is necessary.”

MotoGP weekend includes races in junior classes Moto 2 and Moto 3 in which around 5000 people work. The race will help Uttar Pradesh to mark its presence on the global map and its tourism will also be benefitted.

Nath said that without the help of the Government race is not possible and he is appreciative of the Indian Government. 

The biggest challenge is to create the infrastructure for the race. During the Formula 1 race earlier, apart from taxation, custom clearance was a major issue. Concerned stakeholders can’t go wrong this time. 

Vicky Chandhok, former FMSCI president said that for the success of the event, seamless equipment entry is a must. It’s a massive market in the end and Nascar may come in. The all-electric Formula E race is also arriving at Hydrabad next February and Indian motorsports will get what it was waiting for.
