Dorna has confirmed a contract extension for the Argentian MotoGP round that means that the round will feature on the series’ calendar until 2021. The Gran Premio de la Republica Argentina has been held at the track in Santiago del Estero since 2014, before which there were ten Grands Prix held near Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, with the first having taken place in 1961.
The renewal was announced at the same time as the 2019 event set for Termas de Rio Hondo early next season, with Governor of Santiago del Estero Gerardo Zamora and Dorna Director of Operations Carles Jorba in attendance. They were joined by OSD President Orly Terranova as well as representatives of national and regional tourism boards.
The sixth event at Termas de Rio Hondo sees MotoGP return to Argentina from the 29th to 31st March 2019.
