motogp bharat

The 2024 MotoGP Bharat has been officially cancelled, leaving fans disappointed. The race, which was initially scheduled to take place at the Buddh International Circuit in India, has now been pushed to March 2025. Let’s delve into the details:

Turmoil and Controversies Surrounding MotoGP Bharat

The 2024 edition of MotoGP Bharat faced multiple challenges right from the start of the season. Here are some key points:

  1. Visa Delays: The race encountered visa delays, causing uncertainty around its feasibility.
  2. Dues and Payments: Reports suggested that local promoter Fairstreet Sports had not cleared all its dues with rights holders Dorna and other vendors after the inaugural edition of MotoGP Bharat held in September the previous year.

The Decision

After a meeting involving all stakeholders—DornaFairstreet, and the Uttar Pradesh Government—it was decided to shift the India round to a yet-to-be-decided date in March 2025. Fairstreet Sports CEO, Pushkar Nath Srivastava, clarified that the postponement was not due to payment delays but rather the unconducive weather in September. The extreme conditions were tough on both riders and marshals, as experienced during the previous year’s race.

Looking Ahead

Despite the setback, there’s a silver lining. MotoGP will indeed return to India in 2025, and organizers are now seeking a slot in March when the weather is more favorable. The inaugural MotoGP Bharat in 2023 saw over 50,000 fans at the Buddh International Circuit, and expectations are high for an even better turnout next year. With a seven-year agreement signed between Dorna and Fairstreet, the future of this high-profile event looks promising.

As fans eagerly await the return of MotoGP to India, the anticipation grows for an exciting race in March 2025. Until then, let’s keep our helmets on and our engines revving! 🏍️🇮🇳3
