2022 MotoGP Calendar: Grand Prix and Testing Schedule (Updated October 7)

2022 MotoGP Calendar

October 7, 2021 Update: The 21-round 2022 MotoGP World Championship Series has been announced. It runs from March 6 in Doha, Qatar to November 6 in Valencia, Spain. There are two flyaway sub-series. The four opening rounds are outside of Europe—Qatar, Indonesia, Argentina, and the United States. The four rounds prior to the final round in Valencia are in Japan, Thailand, Australia, and Malaysia. Two new tracks are on the schedule—Mandalika International Circuit in Indonesia and KymiRing in Finland.

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.
