THE news that MotoGP would once again be returning to the MotoGP calendar after a decade hiatus has been bubbling away in the background for a few years now. Although we have only just been able to clap eyes on the proposed all-new circuit.

The attached video, see below, has been drawn up and rendered by F1 and MotoGP circuit designers Dromo, and shows the new Magyar Nemzetközi Motodrome. They are the same team who carried out the vital renovation work carried out at Silverstone after that washout that was the 2018 MotoGP race.

And the new track is refreshingly un-F1-like. In this era of Hermann Tilke designed circuits, layouts became flat and featureless, great for TV spectators and the money the sponsors bring – pretty naff for fans over racing and, more importantly, overtaking.

On that note, the new Magyar Nemzetközi circuit has some nice features, with some extremely fast-looking corners that actually have a fairly high degree of banking built into them. There is also some nice rise and fall to the venue too. We aren’t talking Portimao of Brno here, but for a modern MotoGP circuit, this one actually looks pretty good. And the overtaking options look to extend further than just the out-braking move at the hairpins.

The track is being branded as a ‘human-centered track’ designed to give the best experience to the fans watching live and the riders taking part. The International layout is 5050m in length and up to 14m wide. It is FIM Grade A and can be split into inner and outer loops giving three configurations in total.
