INDIANAPOLIS - The FIM MotoGP World Championship will return to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a seventh consecutive year in 2014, as the Red Bull Indianapolis GP will take place Aug. 8-10 on a revised motorcycle circuit that will create even more exciting action.
The 2014 date is one week earlier than the 2012 and 2013 events at IMS.
Riders in all three World Championship classes - MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 - will compete on a new-look road course next August at IMS, with Race Day set for Sunday, Aug. 10.
IMS officials worked with series organizer Dorna Sports and worldwide governing body FIM to create a 16-turn, 2.645-mile circuit featuring exciting new turn configurations and braking zones, creating more passing opportunities. The entire infield section of the circuit will be repaved, creating a more uniform, smooth racing surface.
On-track action will continue in a counter-clockwise direction for motorcycles at IMS.
Dorna Sports and the FIM issued a provisional 2014 schedule Oct. 2. The Red Bull Indianapolis GP is one of 19 races next season.
The 2014 season starts March 23 at Qatar and ends Nov. 9 at Valencia, Spain. The Red Bull Indianapolis GP is the 10th event on the scheduled, preceded by the Grand Prix of the Germany on July 13 and followed by the Grand Prix of the Czech Republic on Aug. 17.
