This will be the seventh successive year that MotoGP has visited the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway venue and since last season some modifications have taken place. The IMS MotoGP layout has been redesigned to create a 16-turn, 2.591-mile (4.170-kilometre) circuit with exciting new turn configurations and braking zones, creating more passing opportunities.

Turns 3, 4, 7, 15 and 16 have been reconfigured and the entire infield section of the circuit has been repaved to create a more uniform and smooth racing surface. Compared to the previous circuit, the new one is slightly shorter overall (by 0.03 miles / 0.048 km) but retains its 16-turn layout (ten left-handed turns, six right) and anti-clockwise racing direction.
