MotoGP have unveiled the provisional calendar for next year’s 2021 season.
The MotoGP World Championship is looking to return to some form of normality next season, with a 20 round calendar proposed.
As usual, the season will commence under the lights in Qatar on March 28th before returning to Argentina (11 April) and America (18 April). The series will then return to Europe for the Spanish Grand Prix at Jerez (02 May) before the usual flurry of circuits.
Le Mans on the 16th May followed by Mugello at the end of May. June sees the MotoGP field head to Catalunya (6th) and a return to Assen on the 27th June.
Kymiring will make its delayed debut on 11th July before taking a summer break. However, between Finland and Austria, there is a circuit still to be decided, most likely the usual Czech round.
Spielberg will host the Grand Prix event on 15th August before a summer Bank Holiday at Silverstone on the 29th. Aragon and Misano have switched for next season, with Aragon hosting on the 12th September and Misano seven days later.
2021 also sees the return of the flyaways, with Motegi spearheading the journey on October, 3rd. After Japan, MotoGP will head to Thailand for the Thai Grand Prix at the Chang International Circuit (10th October) before heading to the usual Phillip Island (24th October) and Sepang (31st October) to close the flyaway stint.
The season will complete its 2021 tour in Valencia for the traditional season finale on November 14th.
However, of course the season remains in question with the Coronavirus pandemic continuing to sweep across the globe. For this reason, Dorna and the FIM have introduced three reserve circuits, this season’s finale, Portimao, Mandalika, an Indonesian street circuit that was tipped to make its debut in 2021 and a Russian circuit, Igora Drive Circuit.
