The provisional 2024 MotoGP calendar has been released, featuring a record 22 rounds including the return of Kazakhstan.

That represents an expansion relative to the original 2023 calendar, even before the would-be inaugural Kazakhstan Grand Prix was cancelled due to circuit homologation issues.

Now, the Sokol International Racetrack is back, but “subject to contract and homologation,” according to Dorna’s announcement.

The other addition relative to those venues which have/will in fact host events this year is Aragon, which had been slated for rotation with other Spanish circuits.

However, the other Spanish tracks, namely Jerez, Catalunya, and customary season finale venue Valencia, have been retained.

Italy is the other country which will see multiple MotoGP events, at Mugello and Misano, the latter of which is officially the place of the San Marino Grand Prix.

Qatar returns to the season-opening position after being bumped to a mid-November slot this year, due to upgrades to the Lusail circuit for Formula 1.

Portugal’s Portimao, however, retains a March berth after hosting Round 1 of the 2023 MotoGP season.

Its event is, though, subject to contract, as is that of India, which made its debut on the calendar in recent days with a round at the Buddh International Circuit.

The trip to the subcontinent again leads into the Asia-Pacific flyaways, with Phillip Island slated to play host to the world championship on October 18-20.

Dorna Sports has noted in its announcement that, “The 2024 calendar also retains its regionalised nature, with races grouped geographically and along routes that allow increased efficiency as freight and personnel traverse the world.”

There is no confirmation yet of formats, after sprint races were introduced at every round this year.

Hungary’s new Balaton Park Circuit has been listed as a reserve venue for 2024.

The 2023 MotoGP season continues this weekend with the Japanese Grand Prix at Motegi.
