Twenty rounds have provisionally been set between March and November next year; Portimao, Indonesia and Russia on the reserve list.
The following is a press release from MotoGP…
The provisional 2021 MotoGP calendar has been released as we get a first taste as to what next year’s season might look like. Nineteen venues are currently on the provisional calendar with a 20th to be decided, while Portimao, Indonesia and the Igora Drive Circuit in Russia are on the ‘Reserve Grand Prix Venues’ list.
The provisional calendar will see the opening race of the season take place in Qatar, our usual opening Grand Prix venue at the end of March. After a weekend off the MotoGP circus heads to Argentina and America on April 11 and 18 before the European leg begins, as usual, at the Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto on May 2.
France, Italy, Catalunya, Germany, Netherlands and—subject to homologation—Finland will lead us to July 11, with the next venue on the list currently down as TBA. If the provisional calendar becomes the final one, then Austria and Great Britain host MotoGP races in August, before the Aragon and San Marino rounds take place in September.
Then, hopefully, it’s time for the flyaway races. Japan and Thailand will be back to back on October 3 and 10, before Australia and Malaysia get underway on October 24 and 31. And then, after a weekend off, the grand finale will be held in Valencia on November 14 as another season draws to a close in eastern Spain.
