MotoGP to Austria in 2016

Agreement reached for Austria to host MotoGP in 2016
Red Bull's Dietrich Mateschitz and Dorna Sports CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta have reached an agreement which will see MotoGP return to Austria as early as 2016, with the race to be staged at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg.

Pending all of the necessary official approvals for the Red Bull Ring, Dorna will propose the inclusion of the Grand Prix to the FIM to be scheduled in the 2016 season.

The Red Bull Ring already hosts the Austrian F1 Grand Prix (pictured). Austria last held a motorcycle grand prix in 1997, before Red Bull took over what was then named the A1 ring.

As well as Red Bull sponsoring many of the two-wheeled stars, Austrian manufacturer KTM is a leading contender in the Moto3 grand prix class and intends to make its MotoGP debut in 2017.
