MotoGP: It's official, the Argentine GP will not be held

The news certainly doesn't come as a bolt from the blue given that indiscretions had been circulating between the most important sites linked to the world championship for a few days now. However, now with a press release from the FIM, it has been made official.

The Argentina GP which was supposed to take place on the weekend of April 7, as the third round of the 2024 season, will not take place.

The reasons can be found in the recent election of Javier Milei as president of the South American country, who immediately promised large cuts in expenditure deemed unnecessary for national survival.

Even though the inaugural round of the Motocross World Championship had already been cancelled, only to be reinstated thanks to the intervention of local bodies, in this case, even in the face of much higher costs, there will be no second thoughts.

As stated in the note, the organization's hope is that MotoGP can return to compete on the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit in 2025.

The absence of a replacement circuit was also confirmed. This means that between the race in Portugal scheduled for 24 March and the one in Texas on 14 April, riders will be able to enjoy a long break.
