MotoGP has announced its provisional calendar for the 2024 season, which is set to comprise a record-setting 22 grands prix over nine months on what will be the 75th anniversary of grand prix motorcycle racing.
Per this provisional schedule, the season is set to kick off on 10th March for the Qatar Grand Prix at Lusail International Circuit and end in Valencia at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit on 17th November.
Much like this season, the 2024 MotoGP calendar has been laid out with sustainability in mind, with races grouped together geographically to reduce the travel requirements for teams.
After Qatar, the Portuguese Grand Prix is followed by a trip to Argentina and onto Texas and the Circuit of the Americas. From there the European season begins, beginning with the Spanish Grand Prix, before visits to Italy, Netherlands, and Germany ahead of the summer break.
The action returns for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone in August, before heading to Austria, Aragon and San Marino.
The championship will then head further afield for six races in seven weeks. The first of two triple headers kicks off with the Indian Grand Prix, followed by races in Indonesia and Japan. After a weekend off, the teams head to Australia, Thailand and Malaysia in consecutive weekends before things wind down in Valencia.
There are plans again to complete the first grand prix in Kazakhstan, subject to the Sokol circuit being homologated, while the Indian round is still awaiting contractual confirmation. Should the Kazakhstan race once again fall off the calendar, MotoGP has lined up a reserve in Hungary to take place instead.
