race dates and times

[Mis à jour le 04/03/2022 à 12h50] In 2020had the world motorcycle speed championship it looked like a European Championship. In fact, due to the travel limitations inherent in the Covid-19 pandemic, the Old Continent had the exclusive right to organize the 14 Grand Prix of the queen category, 7 of which took place in Spain. A year later, the situation has changed little, the discipline still had to deal with many cancellations of American, Asian, and Oceanic events. 15 of the 18 races in 2021 have been associated with the European continent, with the exception of the inaugural double round held in Qatar and the Austin event in the United States held last October.

After two seasons disrupted by the pandemic, the MotoGP caravan wants to put the wheels back on the ground of all its usual destinations. By 2022, the conviction to return to normal translates into a particularly tight schedule, full of 21 Grand Prix, unpublished. So far, no discipline never exceeded the 19-race threshold in a single seasona record total doubled, in 2018 and 2019. Initially, the last year so far had the organization of 20 events before deciding to reduce this total to 18, due to the health crisis.

After a last-minute postponement in 2020, in October, the French GP had returned to its usual track the following year, in mid-May. It is therefore not surprising that the next edition of the race organized at the Bugatti circuit in Le Mans will take place in the middle of spring. The next French Motorcycle Grand Prix is ​​scheduled for Sunday, May 15, 2022. To notice the box office is already open.

No surprise the championship starts in Qatar on March 6. Following the planned trips to Indonesia, Argentina and the United States, the European tour will begin with the Portuguese Grand Prix on April 24th. On July 10, the discipline is scheduled to compete in a race in Finland for the first time since 1982. Initially, the KimyRing event should have been christened in 2020, but the vagaries of the health crisis had finally jeopardized the validation of the approval of this spectacular circuit.

He series of twelve consecutive races in the Old Continent will conclude with the Aragon Grand Prix on September 18. Four non-European trips must follow, to Japan, Thailand, Australia and Malaysia. Like Qatar at the inauguration, the final round is a classic of recent years, as it is to be held on the track Ricardo Tormo de Valencia in Spain, November 6. Obviously, due to the health crisis, this schedule confirmed by the International Motorcycle Federation (IMF) is likely to change at any time.
