Donington Park will host the British MotoGP in 2015 before the Circuit of Wales takes on the race a year later, it has been confirmed.
The yet-to-be-built circuit in Blaenau Gwent, south Wales, agreed a deal to host the event for five years earlier this month with an option for that length to be doubled.
However, unable to fulfill the first year of that deal, it was agreed that another circuit would take on the first race of the contract.
"After announcing the long-term MotoGP agreement between Dorna [MotoGP rights holder] and the Circuit of Wales three weeks ago our priority has been to agree the venue for 2015," said Chris Herring of the Circuit of Wales.
"It is in the interests of everyone, especially the fans, to make a decision as soon as possible and in Donington Park we have a venue that shares our vision for growing MotoGP in the UK."
Donington previously hosted MotoGP from 1987 to 2009, and Dorna chief executive officer Carmelo Ezpeleta is pleased with the latest plans.
"The Circuit of Wales has worked very quickly to secure the best deal for the British race fans and we believe Donington Park will deliver a fantastic race in 2015," he said.
"Donington Park has a long history and has been the scene of some of the most exciting MotoGP races in recent years and we are sure that the extensive works undertaken since it reopened four years ago will guarantee a successful event."
Marc Marquez won this year's race at Silverstone on Sunday.
