Circuit of Wales, Ebbw Vale: MotoGP for circuit

Motorcycling's British MotoGP is being brought to Wales in deal signed for five years.

It will be held at the new £315m Circuit of Wales race track in Blaenau Gwent, which has yet to be built.

Land near Ebbw Vale will be transformed into the Circuit of Wales to host all but Formula 1 racing.

Next year's event will take place elsewhere in Britain but it is hoped the circuit in Ebbw Vale will take on the remaining four years.

Paul Heaney reports.
