The organizers couldn’t ensure the required services at GP standards. The cancellation won’t have a replacement on the 2024 calendar, but the race hopes to return in 2025.
Argentina faces economic troubles with high inflation, negative reserves, and over 40% living in poverty. President Javier Milei, in office since December, plans significant spending cuts for economic recovery.
The Termas de Rio Hondo event got government subsidies, but strikes and transport issues also influenced the decision. MotoGP acknowledges challenges but remains optimistic about returning in 2025.
The cancellation poses a challenge for MotoGP as the U.S. Grand Prix in Austin follows closely on April 14. Swift team and freight transfers from Argentina to Texas add complexity to the series’ operations. Fans and participants await how MotoGP handles these unforeseen circumstances and the potential return to Argentina in the future.
