MotoGP: 2011 Provisional Schedule

2011 MotoGP

The provisional 2011 MotoGP calendar was released today with no additional tracks added to the 18-race schedule.

The two races that don’t feature support classes (Moto2 and 125cc) will be the Netherlands and the USGP at Laguna Seca. It was recently confirmed that AMA Pro Racing, which includes AMA Superbike, AMA Daytona Sportbike and AMA Supersport, will be running alongside MotoGP at the USGP.

Also, the Japanese Grand Prix in Motegi will be back in it’s normal spot of third on the 2011 MotoGP schedule; this year, the race was moved up in the season due to volcanic eruptions.
