Triple Superbike World Champion Troy Bayliss has said that Abu Dhabi needed to build race tracks for bikes and hold a championship right from the grass-root level to nurture talent and make a strong case for hosting MotoGP in the future.

Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina Circuit, the spectacular venue of the Formula One Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, was talked about as a possible candidate on the MotoGP calendar. In fact, MotoGP bosses, renowned track designer Hermann Tilke and riders Loris Capirossi and Casey Stoner visted the Yas Marina Circuit couple of years ago and the delegation had suggested a few changes to the circuit in terms of run-off areas and safety precautions for bikes.
