The FIM have unveiled the 2020 MotoGP provisional calendar. The championship will have 20 races next year.
While most venues and dates look similar, the Thai round in Buriram will be moved from October to March. The schedule will also see the addition of Kymiring in Finland in July for the first time.
The Thai MotoGP race takes over from WorldSBK. The latter series saw a large drop of spectators since MotoGP was introduced to the country.
So, instead of the usual opener in Qatar followed by the two races in the USA and Argentina, Thailand slots in after Qatar.
The campaign continues in Europe with the Spanish round in May, continuing afterwards with France, Italy, Catalunya, Germany, Netherlands, the aforementioned Finland. The riders and teams get a well-earned 3-week break before continuing in Czech Republic, Austria, Great Britain, San Marino and finally Aragon.
The next three fly-away rounds are familiar to followers i.e. Japan, Australia, Malaysia in November and ending in Valencia.
There will be two winter testes for the MotoGP field. The first will be in Sepang from 7th to 9th February. The second test is in Qatar, one week before the 2020 season kicks off.
