Brace yourself as the first-ever MotoGP race in India is scheduled to be held at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC) in Greater Noida from September 22 to 24. MotoGP Bharat, which was earlier titled IndianOil Grand Prix will be the 13th race in the 2023 season.

Buddh International Circuit

BIC is a fast-flowing track with eight right turns and five left turns. The circuit has a 1.06km-long back straight which is divided into two parts. The first is downhill, helping the riders achieve maximum acceleration, while the latter is uphill and allows them to brake late while maintaining top speed.

The parabola or the stadium section on turn 9 and 10, is the perfect camber for riders to slingshot out of the turns and permits them to push their bikes to the limit.
