Hungary MotoGP Round Could Be Canceled
The financial crisis looks close to claiming yet another victim in MotoGP. After Kawasaki's withdrawal, and a similar fate narrowly avoided for Suzuki, this time it is a race which is on the chopping block. Motorcycle News is reporting that the Hungarian round of MotoGP could be canceled, after funding problems have struck construction of the brand new Balatonring circuit.
Rumors of such a move had emerged at the end of last year, but MCN is claiming to have received information from "senior MotoGP officials". MCN is also reporting that a move to the brand new Portimao circuit in Portugal was mooted, as a replacement for the Balatonring round, but that this was discounted because it would be too close to the official Portuguese Grand Prix at Estoril in early October. Given the current calls for cost-cutting in MotoGP, the more popular choice might be for the round to be canceled altogether. Skipping a whole weekend would cut down on expenditure significantly.
