MotoGP Coming to Barber?
Crash.net reports that the US MotoGP may end up at the Barber Motorsports Park as early as 2007. Better yet, we may end up with GP two races here in the States!
The success of last weekend's US Grand Prix at Laguna Seca, the first Motorcycle Grand Prix held in the United States since 1994, has reignited the interest of Barber Motorsports Park in hosting a MotoGP race.Sadly, I wasn't able to make it to Laguna Seca for this year's event, but I could sure make it to Birmingham.
The Alabama circuit had previously been named as the most likely venue for MotoGP's return, until funding problems saw it superseded by Laguna Seca - which will also host next year's race. However, Barber's promoters are now looking at either taking over the US GP from 2007 or, more likely, of holding a second event.
