MotoGP adds Kazakhstan to calendar in 2023

| | MotoGP

MotoGP will add Kazakhstan to the 2023 calendar as part of a five-year deal with the new Sokol circuit.

Located just outside Kazakhstan’s largest city, Almaty, Sokol is a brand-new motorsport complex constructed in the heart of Central Asia and The region will be a new stop for MotoGP.

Kazakhstan will also become the 30th country to host a motorcycle Grand Prix since 1949, a perfect landmark number to celebrate the ever-expanding history of the world’s first motorsport World Championship, and Sokol International Racetrack will be the 74th venue to host a premier class Grand Prix.

There is a video to go with this but Dorna won’t let you see it on unofficial channels. And it wonders why attendances are in a worse state than sterling…
