Argentina will stay on the Moto GP calendar until 2025 after the race at the Termas de Rio Hondo track was cancelled for the last two years due to COVID-19, rights holders Dorna said on Wednesday.

The circuit in the northern province of Santiago del Estero first hosted Moto GP in 2014.

"The three-year contract renewal...is fantastic news for MotoGP, showing once again the incredible level of interest in our sport across the territory," Dorna chief executive Carmelo Ezpeleta said in a statement.

The 2021 race was cancelled this month. The circuit suffered a major fire in February with pit and paddock buildings being rebuilt.
