Brazil - MotoGP will return to Brazil for the first time in a decade next year subject to an upgrade to the Nelson Piquet track in Brasilia, circuit promoters Dorna has announced.

Grand Prix motorcycling last took place there in Rio de Janeiro in 2004 and its return is subject to approval by the MotoGP safety commission and the agreement of the International Motorcycling Federation.


Dorna chief Carmelo Ezpeleta said: "Brazil is one of the most important motorcycling markets in the world (and a return) has been a wish of the whole MotoGP family for many years. It is really fantastic. An important project for us. Brazil is involved in many big projects, among them the football World Cup and Olympic Games - it is also very important."

Should the race go ahead, South America would go from having no rounds on the 2013 calendar to two in 2014, with Argentina also hosting a race at the new Termas de Rio Hondo circuit.
