Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS) will be on the FIM MotoGP World Championship schedule for a seventh consecutive season in 2014 and fans can expect to see some notable changes. IMS coordinated with the FIM and Dorna to rework the circuit, and it promises to have more braking zones, turn configurations and more passing opportunities. The infield portion of the circuit will be repaved to provide a smoother, more uniform race surface, according to an IMS press release.

“The MotoGP World Championship has added greatly to the diversity and excitement at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway since the inaugural event in 2008, and we’re thrilled to welcome back the greatest riders on Earth to the Racing Capital of the World next August,” said J. Douglas Boles, Indianapolis Motor Speedway president. “The changes we’re making to our road course will create even closer, faster competition for our fans at this unique, fun event that has become a vital part of our annual racing schedule.”

MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 will all return to compete on the updated course in 2014, with race day provisionally set for August 10, one week earlier than the event in 2013.
