Almost everyone was excited about release of 2020 MotoGP provisional calendar and we could say that we were not disappointed at the end. Wait is finally over and MotoGP released a first provisional calendar of the races of the next year; indeed, we have to consider that some circuits are still waiting for contract’s renew like Brno and Kymiring is still waiting for FIM approval.
Anyway, first big news is that Thailand GP in Buriram is gonna be the second race of the season, a consistent change considering that in 2018 and in 2019 was one of the last Grand Prix in the calendar. Buriram is gonna host MotoGP guys so just after first race of the season in Qatar, planned for 8th March. There is also a switch between Americas GP and Argentinian one, with Termas which is now after Austin, like in 2014 and 2015.
Another big change is the switch between Assen and Sachsenring, with Dutch GP who will be just after German one, with Sachsenring that is not gonna be last GP before Summer break anymore. That spot is now taken by Finland GP, with Kymiring that is ready to host MotoGP guys and is planned on 12th July before riders’ holidays.
Nothing changed on the rest, with Brno which is gonna be the race after Summer break followed by Red Bull Ring in Austria, while Silverstone is planned for the end of August with Misano to be scheduled for 13th September. Aragon will then precede Motegi, Phillip Island and Sepang tryptic before the last race in Valencia planned for 15th November.
