MotoGP organizers have released the provisional 2022 calendar with 21 GPs, two of which in new locations: Mandalika, Indonesia and KymiRing, Finland.
The main novelty on the calendar is the new Mandalika circuit, which is currently in the final stages of construction, and which will host, later this year, a round of the WorldSBK Superbike Championship.
The 2022 season starts in Qatar in early March (6-8). Then, from March 18-20, the category goes to the new Mandalika International Street Circuit for the first time. After a weekend off, a race in Argentina and the Americas (USA) takes place in style in April, with a trip to Portimao (Portugal) on April 22-24, the first European race of the season.
A short trip to Jerez for the Spanish GP follows the Portugal GP from April 29th to May 1st, with GPs in France, Italy, Catalan, German and Dutch taking place in May and June. From the 8th to the 10th of July, before the three-week summer break, the MotoGP paddock heads to the KymiRing for the first Finnish GP since 1982.
The British GP at Silverstone brings us back to the rhythm of things for the second half of the season on August 5-8, with the Austrian GP and Red Bull Ring hosting round 14 on August 19-21. The San Marino GP at the Misano Marco Simoncelli World Circuit takes place from 2 to 4 September, before the appearance of a triple round.
The riders and teams will race at MotorLand Aragon between the 16th and 18th of September, before the paddock will head straight to the Twin Ring Motegi for the Japan GP on the 23rd to the 25th. A week later, the return to Thailand is scheduled for September 30th to October 2nd.
The MotoGP circus then travels to Australia and the classic Phillip Island on 14-16 October, with the Malaysian GP arriving a week later on 21-23 October – the penultimate round of the campaign. The traditional final round of the season’s venue will be the Ricardo Tormo Circuit of Valencia, with the 2022 closing from November 4-6.
MotoGP returns on October 24th with Gran Premio Nolan del Made in Italy e dell’Emilia-Romagna at Misano, Italy.
