The first glimpses of the 2022 MotoGP calendar are here. There are three official tests planned, and the opening round has been revealed.
The 2022 FIM MotoGP World Championship Series will start under the lights at Losail International Circuit in Qatar. The night race is scheduled for March 6, though Dorna still considers the date “tentative.”
The 2022 Moto GP season starts on January 31 at Sepang International Circuit with the Shakedown Test. However, it is only open to factory test riders and MotoGP rookies. All the MotoGP racers are invited to the Sepang Test just a few days later at the same eponymous circuit in Malaysia.
Less than a week after the conclusion of the Sepang Test comes the Mandalika Test. The test will be the MotoGP debut for the long-awaited new Mandalika International Street Circuit in Indonesia.
Although not MotoGP, there will be a Moto2 and Moto3 test at Circuito de Jerez — Ángel Nieto running from February 22-24.

Aprilia Racing Team

- Maverick Viñales
Ducati Lenovo Team
- Pecco Bagnaia

Respol Honda Team
- Pol Espargaró
