Hungary taken off MotoGP calendar

Previous reports about the Hungarian Grand Prix have proven correct and the Balatonring event, due to make its delayed MotoGP debut in 2010, has now been 'cancelled'.

An FIM statement said that 'the construction work cannot be finished on time' but gave no indication as to whether the event will be given a third chance, having originally been due to join the grand prix calendar in 2009.

The reserve circuit of Motorland Aragon has been promoted into Hungary's September 17-19 date, meaning that the calendar remains at 18 rounds and that there will now be four Spanish rounds in 2010.

FFS another spanish grand prix!!! why can't they make do with one home round like most other countries? This just cheapens what should be a WORLD championship, better to lose a round than have so many in one country.

Why do they have two Spanish national Championships? Holy crap! Is there really no other track to be found? England is full of them. Germany has several, France has several.... Too many Spanish people in the organisation.
