The FIM MotoGP World Championship is coming to Kazakhstan, event organisers announced on Tuesday, September 27.
“2023 marks the start of a new five-year deal that sees MotoGP touch down in a new region of the world as the stunning Sokol International Racetrack joins the calendar,” they said.
They added: “Located just outside Kazakhstan’s largest city, Almaty, Sokol is a brand-new motorsport complex constructed in the heart of Central Asia.
“The region will be a new pitstop for MotoGP as the sport continues to expand around the world, engaging with new markets and fanbases.
“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.”
