MotoGP: Indonesia set to join the calendar as a street race

MotoGP bosses have announced that Indonesia will join the calendar in 2021 after announcing a 3-year deal with the championship.

The plans to introduce an all-new street circuit in Indonesia are well underway after Dorna officials agree to a 3-year deal to host the Indonesian Grand Prix.

The man behind the course, Abdulbar M. Mansoer, says the design of the circuit, which is set for a 4.32km layout featuring 18 corners, have already been approved by FIM Safety Officer Franco Uncini.

The addition of the Indonesian Grand Prix will see MotoGP break into one of the biggest Motorcycle markets in the world.

This will take the championship to 20 rounds, whilst the Finnish venue KymiRing expected to join the calendar in 2020, would make it 21 races in the season.
