The 2014 MotoGP calendar could see the first steps in a long process to transform Grand Prix motorcycle racing from a Eurocentric series to a truly international world championship. Today, Dorna CEO held a press conference in Brazil to announce that MotoGP could make a return to that South American country as early as late 2014. The event would be held at the Autodromo Nelson Piquet de Brasilia, the motorcycle circuit in the capital city of Brazil, and has been scheduled to take place in the second half of the 2014 season. That date is still very far from certain, however, as the track is still subject to safety homologation by the FIM for Grand Prix motorcycle racing.

Quotes from The Matrix notwithstanding, what appeared a foregone conclusion in Sunday’s Indianapolis MotoGP race was just that: Marc Marquez, who led every practice, won in dominating fashion, finishing three seconds ahead of teammate Dani Pedrosa.
Esteve Rabat tooks his second Moto2 win of the season with a stunning late charge to haul in and pass second-place finisher Takaaki Nakagami. Rabat's win at Indianpolis is a return to the front group after a series of tough races for the Spaniard. Nakagami's second also marks a return to form for the Japaese rider who started the Moto season strong but has faded in recent races.
