Assen has signed a new agreement with Dorna Sports to continue hosting the MotoGP Dutch TT and the Dutch Round of WorldSBK until at least 2031.

Assen's existing contract with Dorna was due to expire in 2026, but the new agreement extends five years beyond that and into the next decade.

Assen's Grand Prix history is the most famous among the circuits, having hosted the Dutch TT every year on the last Saturday of June between 1949 and 2017, after which the race was moved to the Sunday. It's also featured on the WorldSBK calendar since 1993, when both races were won by Carl Fogarty who went unbeaten at the Dutch track until Race 1 of 1997, which was won instead by John Kocinski.


Fogarty won a total of 12 WorldSBK races at Assen in his career - only Jonathan Rea has more with 17, which is a record for the most number of WorldSBK race wins by a single rider at a single circuit.

Regarding the Dutch TT and Assen's extension with Dorna for MotoGP, Arjan Bos, Chairman of TT Circuit Assen, said: "We are delighted with this contract extension, especially now that MotoGP is developing strongly. It confirms the status of the TT Assen as one of the highlights on the MotoGP calendar. We are proud to continue to build the future of motorsport together with MotoGP.”

About WorldSBK, he added: “WorldSBK is such an important fixture on our calendar. Because of the constant interaction with the fans, young and old, we can continue to grow our fanbase for motorsport in general. World Superbike always gets a lot of appreciation from riders and public alike. We are very proud to continue as a location for this major event.”

Gregorio Lavilla, WorldSBK Executive Director, said: "We are proud to announce the continuation of TT Circuit Assen as a staple venue in the WorldSBK calendar through 2031. TT Circuit Assen, with its rich history and thrilling racing, remains an essential part of the WorldSBK heritage. We are excited to keep delivering outstanding racing experiences to our fans."
