Would you attend a joint round of MotoGP and F1? If so, this is where it would be held…


Plans are afoot for MotoGP and Formula 1 to come together and host a round of respective World Championship series’ as part of the same race weekend at the same venue, it has been revealed.

According to Marca, talks have reached a stage advanced enough to have identified the Circuit of The Americas as the venue for a potential joint event that will see both the Grand Prix of The Americas and the F1 United States Grand Prix take place on the same programme.

The plans have emerged as part of Liberty Media and Dorna’s attempts to both harness F1 and MotoGP’s strengths as a viewing spectacle for fans and soften a relationship that has at times seen the two series’ pitched against one another as rivals.

Indeed, F1 – particularly under Liberty Media’s steer since it took over the running of F1 – has enjoyed a burst in popularity through initiatives as the Drive To Survive documentary series on Netflix and prioritising city central locations for new venues, MotoGP has the benefit of offering more unpredictability from its races.

As such, F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali and Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta have met to discuss the prospect of pooling fan bases of both series on one weekend, held at COTA with its sizable spectator capacity.

“With Stefano Domenicali, whom I have had an extraordinary relationship for many years, we have been considering it for a long time,” he told Marca.

“It is not easy, but we cannot get it out of our minds. If it is possible, we will do it.”

Last year’s F1 United States Grand Prix attracted 432,000 spectators over the four-day event. Curiously, MotoGP’s Grand Prix of The Americas spectator figures are withheld but the 2023 French MotoGP at Le Mans reached a new weekend record of 279,000 in 2023.
