India to host MotoGP for first time in 2023
Stay tuned with 24 News HD Android App
The race is scheduled to take place at Buddh International Circuit in Uttar Pradesh, to the south of New Delhi.
The track has already played host to Formula One, staging three F1 grands prix between 2011 and 2013.
India represents a key market to expand the sport, organisers said, citing a population of 1.4 billion people and more than 200 million motorcycles.
"It's a matter of great pride for Uttar Pradesh to host such a global event," Yogi Adityanath, Uttar Pradesh chief minister, said.
Indian authorities hope the event will boost foreign investment.
