Dorna Sports, the commercial rights holder for MotoGP worldwide, sent a 12-person team to India to scout the Buddha International Circuit ahead of the first Indian Grand Prix in September. Dorna's Events Director Norma Luna led a team of MotoGP marketing and sponsorship professionals who visited with all parties involved in the upcoming race in India from September 22-24 to monitor progress towards the highly anticipated event. The team went there to get a sneak peek of the MotoGP Bharat course before the big race on September 22-24. In addition to Enrique Aguilar, who oversaw live coverage, Daniel Trujillo also joined Luna onstage. The crew carefully examined the track to determine its technical characteristics, as well as the broadcast setup facilities and other factors crucial to putting on a top-notch show.

One of the main reasons for hosting MotoGP is to promote the host country as a tourist destination, and the Dorna crew took advantage of their time in India to see the Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the modern world and the pride of Uttar Pradesh. The crew was taken aback by the beauty of the Taj, which is just two hours away from the track.
The Chief Operating Officer of FairStreet Sports, Pushkar Nath Srivastava, expressed confidence in the venue's ability to host India's largest annual sporting spectacle, saying, “With less than 124 days for the mega event, we had some important operational discussions as well as detailed marketing, branding, sponsorship, and conversations related to the broadcast of the race. It is heartening to see how important MotoGP™ Bharat is from the global perspective as well as for us, the Indian stakeholders alongside the government.”
Further, Srivastava said, "We anticipate a significant boost to the tourism industry, and this event is poised to unlock tremendous investment opportunities for the state of Uttar Pradesh."
