Argentina's Termas de Rio Hondo circuit has received official homologation following a visit from representatives of the FIM and Dorna.

The venue has been given the green light to host the third round of the MotoGP World Championship as Argentina hosts a premier class race for the first time since 1999.

The circuit was inspected this week by officials including Franco Uncini, FIM Safety Officer and Javier Alonso, Managing Director of the Events Area at Dorna and a press conference held within the confines of the circuit confirmed that the track had been passed for racing.

The finishing touches are now being put to work in pit lane and other infrastructure ahead of the race, which will take place over the weekend of April 25-27.

Following a personal inspection of the circuit, 1982 500cc World Champion Uncini said: "It is very fast, has a very special layout in terms of speed and will be very attractive to the riders. With such features, the Autodromo Termas de Rio Hondo is unique worldwide."

Hector Farina, owner of the Autodromo de Las Termas, added: "We have been working very hard to take care of every detail with the circuit, also for all of the public who will be coming to this event."
