2020 MotoGP Schedule: 20-Round Calendar (Provisional)

2020 MotoGP Race and Test Schedule

Dorna has released the provisional 2020 MotoGP schedule, which features some significant changes over the 2019 calendar.

The 2020 MotoGP calendar grows one round to 20 due to the inclusion of the Finland Grand Prix at KymiRing in Litti, Finland.

KymiRing is contracted to host MotoGP for five years and brings back world-stage motorcycle racing to Finland for the first time since 1983. Grand Prix motorcycle racing was first held in Finland in 1962 and 1963 in Tampere. From 1964 through 1983, the series occurred in Imatra.

The other significant change on the 2020 schedule is a change of date for the Thai Grand Prix at Thailand’s Chang International Circuit, which debuted on the 2018 MotoGP calendar.

The round moves from October to March 22 when Chang will host round 2.

The 2020 MotoGP calendar begins March 8 under the floodlights in Qatar, and once again concludes at Spain’s Valencia circuit November 15.

Also included is the 2020 MotoGP test schedule.
