MotoGP Races Will Continue in Spain

Posted: Sep. 27th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

For those looking to visit Barcelona in 2013, heading to a MotoGP race could be an exciting departure from their normal sightseeing, especially if they are fans of racing or vehicles in general.

Spain will again host four rounds of an expanded MotoGP world championship next year despite the economic crisis gripping the country.

Motorcycling's governing body (FIM) on Friday published a provisional 19-race calendar, one more than last year, with races pencilled in for the Jerez, Barcelona, Valencia and Motorland Aragon circuits.
