A couple of weeks after MotoAmerica’s season finale in New Jersey, the nascent series has released its provisional 2016 MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship schedule.

The series will kick of its sophmore season in conjunction with the MotoGP World Championship at the Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas. Six additional rounds have been secured and MotoAmerica has said to be working to add two more events to the schedule to make it a nine-round series, to match the number of events in 2015.

“We’ve been working hard to nail down a schedule as soon as possible because we know how important it is to the teams, sponsors and fans,” said MotoAmerica partner Chuck Aksland. “Right now we have seven events ready to go. The seven rounds we have secured are racetracks we visited this year. We were pleased with our events at those facilities and the tracks are happy to have us return in 2016. The schedule will continue to grow in the coming weeks.”

One the venues absent on the schedule is the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which was lost as a result of the venue being dropped from the MotoGP calendar.

In addition to the Superbike/Superstock 1000, Supersport and Bazzaz Superstock 600 class, the KTM RC Cup Series will also return to the MotoAmerica Series for 2016. A schedule for that series will be available at a later date.
