Debut Hungarian MotoGP at Balatonring cancelled again

The assembled 2010 MotoGP line-up
The MotoGP class of 2010 will not be visiting Hungary as expected

The inaugural Hungarian MotoGP has been cancelled for a second time and replaced by a fourth race in Spain.

Governing body the FIM said the race at the new Balatonring circuit on 19 September would not go ahead because of construction work delays.

It will be replaced by the Grand Prix of Aragon at Spain's Motorland Aragon circuit on the same date.

Spain already has races scheduled for Jerez, Barcelona and Valencia in May, July and November respectively.

Construction of the 4.6km Balatonring in Savoly began in November 2008 but has been hit by problems.

The inaugural Hungarian MotoGP was initially scheduled for September 2009 but was postponed because a harsh winter and financial concerns left the project badly behind schedule.
