A full 20-race season is planned and there are three additional circuits – Portugal, Indonesia and Russia – held in reserve should there be any cancellations.
From Qatar the series heads west for a double-header in Argentina and the US on 11th and 18th April. The 12-round European leg then opens with a Spanish race on 2nd May although the Finnish race scheduled for 11th July is somewhat in question as the KymiRing has yet to be certified by the FIM. The post-summer break race traditionally held in Brno in early August is likewise still to be confirmed due to the need for the circuit to be resurfaced.
MotoGP will head to Silverstone on 28th August with Aragon and Misano wrapping up the European leg on 12th and 19th September respectively. Two Pacific double headers then take place with Japan on 3rd October followed by Thailand the following week. Australian and Malyasian races will be held on 24th October and 31st October before the season finale in Valencia on 14th November.
The calendar is highly provisional due to the restrictions likely to still be in place due to COVID-19 with three venues – Algarve International Circuit (Portimao), Portugal, Mandalika International Street Circuit, Indonesia, and Igora Driver Circuit, Russia, all being lined up as alternatives.
