The FIM has released the provisional 2017 MotoGP Calendar; just as in 2016, it features 18 rounds. The same 18 circuits also appear on the 2017 MotoGP schedule in the same order, except for the swapping of the Czech Republic at Brno (August 8) and Austria at Red Bull Ring (August 13).

MotoGP 2017 begins March 26 at Losail International Circuit in Qatar, and the opening race will begin—as it has since 2008—under the floodlights, due to the March heat in Qatar. The World Championship Grand Prix motorcycle racing series will visit 15 countries, and end at Comunitat Valenciana Ricardo Tormo Circuit in Valencia, Spain on November 12, 2017.

For 2017, there is only one US round—round three at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, which is slated for April 23.

UPDATED 1/23/2017: All Rounds Confirmed.
