MotoGP in Teruel ‘guaranteed’ until 2021
15 June 2016 @ 10:43

AN ANNUAL MotoGP event will take place in the province of Teruel, southern Aragón for the next five years, confirms regional government minister for the economy, industry and employment.

Marta Gastón says she has struck a deal with the company which owns the rights to MotoGP, known as Dorna, to guarantee one of the races on the annual calendar will be held in the town of Alcañiz until at least 2021.

Previous agreements only provided for the MotoGP to take place in Alcañiz for one season, but it is now set to be a firm fixture and the fee increases per year reduced from 5% to 3%.

The MotoGP race will provide a massive boost to Teruel’s tourism – in the winter, this is kept alive through the ski slopes at Javalambre and Valdelinares, and the rest of the year only limited numbers of visitors go there for rural holidays, or to visit the famous lovers of Teruel in the city’s cathedral or the Dinópolis dinosaur dig.
