The world-renowned motorcycle racing championship, MotoGP, has publicly apologised for an error in the map displayed during the live broadcast of practice sessions for the first-ever Indian Oil Grand Prix of India. The event was launched on Friday at the Buddh International Circuit, located in Noida. The map that was depicted failed to include the Indian union territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh, causing a stir among spectators.
In response to the backlash, MotoGP promptly issued an official statement expressing regret over the oversight. The statement read: “We extend our sincere apologies to our Indian fans for the map shown during the MotoGP broadcast earlier. Our aim is never to cause offence or to make any political statement, but to celebrate and support the host country.”
MotoGP’s statement further indicated their enthusiasm for the Indian Grand Prix, expressing their excitement over the newly introduced event and their appreciation for the Buddh International Circuit. They said, “We are thrilled to enjoy the Indian Oil Grand Prix of India with you and are incredibly appreciative of our first experience at the Buddh International Circuit.”
