The FIM has released an updated version of the 2014 calendar, confirming the widely expected cancellation of the proposed Brazilian Grand Prix.
The round, originally scheduled to be held at the Brasilia circuit on 28th September, was only a provisional addition to the 2014 calendar subject to the circuit passing the FIM’s safety homologation requirements. However, it would seem the circuit didn’t even get that far, with organisers unable to secure funding to renovate the Autodromo Internacional Nelson Piquet circuit in the country’s capital, Brasilia.
As a result of this change, Aragon will now take the 26-28 September slot, pushing the original date back by one week.
There will still be one Grand Prix in South America this year, with the race in Argentina expected to go ahead as planned.
