We already know that 2013 will be a big year for MotoGP in the Americas. With the addition of the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, the total number of MotoGP rounds in the United States will increase to three, with Austin joining Indianapolis and Laguna Seca on the calendar. And according to reports in the Argentinian press, there could be a fourth round of MotoGP in the Americas, with a South American race joining the three North American rounds of the series.
The reports state that the Las Termas de Rio Hondo circuit in Argentina is due to sign a contract with Dorna to host a round of the MotoGP championship from 2013 through to 2015. The contract will be signed in the next few days, as the Argentinian president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner is in France to sign, among other things, contracts with the ASO for the extension of the Dakar Rally, and she will be present at the signing with Dorna.
