MotoGP Extend Barcelona Contract

Dorma Sport, the rights holder to MotoGP announced on Friday that they have renewed their partnership with the Barcelona Circuit De Catalunya to the end of 2026.

The news comes hot on the heels of Formula One announcing their own contract extension with the circuit in Montmelo, Spain.

Speaking about the news, Roger Torrent, Catalan Minister of Business and Labour, and Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya President:

“We are very pleased to continue hosting the most important competition in the world of motorcycling. This is great news for the fans of our country, for the international projection of Barcelona and Catalonia, and for the objective of turning the circuit into a strategic piece for the economic and social development linked to the green mobility industry.”

Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO of Dorna Sports:

This contract renewal with the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya for five more seasons is, without a doubt, fantastic news for MotoGP.

“The spectacular Catalan track has been linked to MotoGP since the first beginnings of Dorna and has been a key fixture on the calendar each season. This important agreement extending the collaboration until 2026 demonstrates, once again, the commitment shown to our Championship by the promoter.”
