MotoGP to Finland from 2018

Seems like there may be an agreement to return to Finland starting 2018 - Finland to join MotoGP schedule in 2018 - GPUpdate.net


MotoGP promoter Dorna has announced that it has struck an agreement for Finland to host a round of the championship from 2018.

Finland previously held a round of the championship between 1962 and 1982, firstly at Tampere before switching to Imatra.

MotoGP will return to Finland at the new 2.8-mile Kymi Ring, which is still under construction, for the 2018 campaign.

"Today's announcement that MotoGP is set for a return to Finland for the first time since 1982 reflects the global appeal and growing popularity of the MotoGP championship," read a statement.
