Argentina will return to the MotoGP calendar from 2013 with a race at the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit.

The South American country last hosted a motorcycle grand prix in Buenos Aires in 1999, with the top 500cc race won by American Kenny Roberts Junior.

The three-year contract was signed in Paris in the presence of Argentine president Cristina Fernandez.

It was subject to necessary renovations being carried out to bring the circuit up to safety standards.
