Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta described Jerez as a 'key' MotoGP venue, saying: "It's with great pleasure that I can announce the extension of the Jerez Grand Prix for a further three years.

"It is one of the key stops on the MotoGP calendar with an atmosphere bar none that attracts huge crowds from near and afar.

"It is also a popular venue with the riders, as the track's nature makes it a great spectacle for some of the best racing in the world."

Alongside Jerez, MotoGP will also travel to Spanish circuits Barcelona, Valencia and Aragon in 2013.
