MotoGP has signed a five-year contract to return to Brazil from 2022 with the race to be held at a planned new circuit in Rio de Janeiro.
Rio last hosted a round of the motorcycle world championship in 2004 at the old Jacarepagua circuit that was demolished to make way for the 2016 Summer Olympics.
The Rio Motorpark, with a 4.5km circuit, is due to be completed in 2021.

Formula One is also set to switch to Rio from Sao Paulo, whose contract runs through next year.
Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro said in May that the new track, to be named after late triple world champion Ayrton Senna and funded by private investment, could be built in six to seven months.
Marcelo Crivella, mayor of Rio de Janeiro, said: "The news that we already have a first competition for Rio's new racetrack, MotoGP, confirmed for 2022, represents a great advance for our city.
“The construction of the Deodoro racetrack is a spectacular project, with an extraordinary investment that will generate 7,000 jobs and make Rio regain the leading role in major competitions.
“We will take development to a region of the city with many needs, which is the West Zone, and stimulate tourism.
"All this without the city putting a penny into the project, since the whole investment will be the responsibility of the concessionaire.”
