MotoGP: OFFICIAL - India Grand Prix postponed, Kazakhstan replaces it.

As we anticipated, the Indian Grand Prix will not be held this year and will be postponed until early 2025. Officially, the reason is bad weather conditions at the end of September, although there are rumours that the real one is delays in payments. It has also been reported that Kazakhstan will take the place of the Indian round. The MotoGP riders will therefore make their debut at the Sokol circuit on the weekend of September 20-22.

Following is the official announcement.

"The FIM, IRTA and Dorna Sports announce that the Indian Grand Prix will not take place in 2024, with MotoGP postponing its return to the country to early 2025 due to operational considerations. Following advice from the government of Uttar Pradesh as the state continues its long-term commitment to MotoGP, the sport will return to Buddh International Circuit in March 2025, when weather conditions are expected to be optimal for spectators and riders alike."
