MotoGP releases 21-race provisional calendar for 2022
Thursday 7th October, 2021 - 9:14pm
Dorna Sports has released a provisional 2022 MotoGP calendar comprised of 21 races.
Indonesia’s Mandalika International Street Circuit and Finland’s KymiRing are finally set to make their debuts on the calendar after being slated to do so previously, while Phillip Island is back in a customary mid-October slot, as part of a four-race sequence of Asia-Pacific flyaways.
As previously announced, the season begins with the Qatar Grand Prix, under lights at the Losail International Circuit, on March 4-6.
Indonesia would host Round 2 a fortnight later, subject to homologation of Mandalika, before Argentina and the United States (‘Grand Prix of the Americas’) return to their more standard April slots.
Portugal’s Portimao will feature for a third season in a row as Round 5, before the campaign settles into a very familiar rhythm across Europe.
The Netherlands’ Assen is the last venue before the summer break, on June 24-26, before competition resumes with Finland on July 8-10, also subject to circuit homologation.
Then, once again, it is a fairly typical run of Great Britain, Austria, San Marino, and Aragon, before the field jets off to Asia.
The Japanese Grand Prix is a slightly earlier than usual September 23-25, followed by Thailand, a week off, Australia, and Malaysia.
The finale then takes place at its now usual location, namely Valencia’s Circuit Ricardo Tormo.
The latter is set to host the Superbike World Championship, also run by Dorna, on November 19-21 although that too is, of course, subject to circuit homologation.
