Red Bull Indianapolis GP To Return To IMS In 2014

The Red Bull Indianapolis GP will return to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a seventh consecutive year in 2014, with an expected race date in mid-August to be announced in the future.

Next year is the final year of the agreement between IMS and sanctioning organization and commercial rights holder Dorna to bring all three classes of the MotoGP World Championship – MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 – to the Brickyard. But IMS and Dorna have started discussions about a long-term relationship past the terms of the current contract.

“We’re very pleased that we can bring our fans another thrilling MotoGP World Championship race in 2014 at IMS,” Indianapolis Motor Speedway President J. Douglas Boles said. “The last six years have established a solid foundation for the Red Bull Indianapolis GP, and we are optimistic about the growth of the event in Indianapolis. We are also eager to continue working with our friends at Dorna to ensure an exciting, long-term future for MotoGP at The Racing Capital of the World.”

MotoGP first came to IMS in 2008.

The 2014 Red Bull Indianapolis GP once again will feature superstars Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo, Dani Pedrosa, Marc Marquez and Cal Crutchlow racing on 1000cc prototype motorcycles from Ducati, Honda and Yamaha on the 16-turn, 2.621-mile IMS road course. The race weekend also will include competition in the Moto2 (600cc) and Moto3 (250cc) World Championship classes featuring riders from around the world.

“I’m extremely pleased that MotoGP will be returning to the iconic Indianapolis track in 2014 to bring the pinnacle of motorcycle racing to the American fans,” Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta said. “The Brickyard not only attracts a great crowd every year, but its heritage and history in the world of motor racing also helps grow the popularity of MotoGP in the United States and around the world. I would like to thank the organization and staff at Indianapolis for their fantastic efforts to keep the race at their track, and I am already looking forward to returning next year.”

Popular off-track activities also will return, including the Moto Midway, Vendor Marketplace, Social Media Garage and Motorcycles on Meridian.
