INDIANAPOLIS — The Red Bull Indianapolis GP will return to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 2013, with an expected race date in mid-August to be announced in the future.

There are two years remaining on 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.

“I was very pleased last fall when we agreed to keep the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on the MotoGP schedule for 2012, 2013 and 2014,” said Jeff Belskus, president and CEO of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Corp. “Fans at IMS really enjoy seeing the very best riders on the fastest motorcycles in the world, and the Red Bull Indianapolis GP is an extremely exciting weekend – jam-packed with racing and tremendous interactive, fan-friendly activities, all in a festival-type atmosphere.”

“Following a successful weekend of MotoGP racing, I’m very pleased that we will be returning to this iconic venue next year,” said Carmelo Ezpeleta, Dorna CEO. “Steeped in racing history, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is an ideal track to not only host some of the best racing in the world but to also provide fans with an experience they won’t forget.”
