Doha: Qatar will host the penultimate round of the MotoGP calendar next year on November 19 while India and Kazakhstan are set to host their debut events, it was announced yesterday.

The 2023 season will begin with the Portuguese GP on March 24-26 and wrap up in Valencia on Nov. 24-26, according to the 21-race provisional calendar released by MotoGP.

Kazakhstan will become the 30th country to host a motorcycle grand prix since 1949 when the race takes place on July 7-9 at the Sokol International Racetrack in the northwest of Almaty.

The Indian GP will be held at the Buddh International Circuit in New Delhi from Sept. 22-24, while Le Mans will host the 1000th Grand Prix at the French GP on May 12-14.

“India is also a key market for the motorcycle industry and therefore, by extension, for MotoGP as the pinnacle of the two-wheeled world,” Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO of commercial rights holders Dorna Sports, said in a statement yesterday.

The 5.14km track on the outskirts of New Delhi held Formula One races between 2011-13 before it was dropped from the calendar.

The Kazakhstan and Indian Grands Prix are subject to contract and certification, MotoGP said.

The season ends with a thriller of a triple-header, starting from Malaysia, with Qatar hosting the penultimate race of the season under the floodlights at the Lusail International Circuit as the venue welcomes the sport back to the Middle East. 

Then, to round out the season with its classic final fiesta of the year, the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia brings the competition to a close back in Europe.
