Brno extends MotoGP contract.

MotoGP will return to Brno in the Czech Republic until at least 2013, following an extension of the current agreement between the circuit's owners and world championship commercial rights-holders Dorna Sports.

It is a two-year extension on a contract which already covered the period up to 2011, meaning that MotoGP visits to Brno are assured for at least the next five years.

The Brno date is highly popular with the riders and supporters alike, and this year in August the Czech event was attended by massive crowds of nearly 240,000 over the course of the weekend.

The first ever grand prix held at Brno was in 1965 on the original 13.94 km long road circuit, with the current circuit introduced in 1987 and used every year since then with the exception of 1992.

In 2009 the Czech Republic Grand Prix will be held from August 14-16 and the event will be the 22nd time that the current circuit has hosted a grand prix.

Brno is a great fast track. I always enjoy watching GP there. After watching WSBK at Portimao this past weekend, Portugal''s GP should switch from Estoril to Portimao...Beautiful new track with many elevation changes, blind corners and overtaking spots.
