It may only be September 27, 2023, but if you’re a MotoGP fan, it’s never to early to get the dates for next year noted on your calendar. 2024 is a special year for MotoGP, too, because it marks the 75th anniversary of international motorcycle grand prix racing. It’s also noteworthy because it’s the first year that at least 40 percent of the fuel used is required to come from non-fossil-based origins.
We’re still three years away from 2027, which is the deadline by which MotoGP says it wants all teams to convert to 100 percent non-fossil-based fuels. Although 40 percent is nowhere near 100 percent, it’s still a significant leap from zero—so it will be interesting to learn more about those mitigation efforts and how the paddock is proceeding.
To a degree, the MotoGP calendar has also been arranged with an eye toward making some type of geographic sense regarding travel. While the calendar does a better job of keeping many races in a similar geographic region together than in years past, there are still some choices that aren’t located anywhere near each other. For example, the season opener starts in Qatar in March—and from there, two weeks later, the teams will be back in Portugal and then in Argentina two weeks after that.
That said, here’s the full 22-race provisional 2024 MotoGP calendar as released on September 27, 2023. Please note that race dates can and do change in between the time that the provisional calendar is released and the actual race weekends. Some of the dates on this calendar are subject to contracts and/or homologation requirements, and we’ll note those in the listings as appropriate.
