Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo and Marc Marquez will get the chance to evaluate the new Circuito Internacional Termas de Río Hondo track in Argentina in early July.

Dorna today confirmed that as part of a special promotional visit to Argentina immediately after the Dutch TT at Assen, Honda, Yamaha and Ducati will participate in a two-day test at the new South American venue, which will host its first MotoGP race in 2014.

A statement released by Dorna today said: "With the 2013 MotoGP World Championship having been launched last weekend, it has been confirmed that some teams will head to Argentina later this year for a test session to be staged at the Circuito Internacional Termas de Río Hondo in the first week of July, just after the IVECO TT Assen.

"Between 1st and 5th July, MotoGP riders and teams will move swiftly from The Netherlands to Argentina and the province of Santiago del Estero. They will also visit capital city Buenos Aires for a selection of media commitments.

"Several representatives of the World Championship - including those of marques such as Honda, Ducati and Yamaha - will take part in official trials in Argentina.

"The program will include two days of intensive work on the track, where each team will focus on their competitiveness, while being able to extract data for the circuit for when the Grand Prix of Argentina is added to the calendar in 2014."
