New MotoGP 2021 Schedule Released

A new 2021 provisional calendar has been released today, and there will be no new races until March 28th, 2021.

Few sports travel internationally quite as much as vehicle racing sports like MotoGP. 2020 was already set to be a wild ride due to “Silly Season”, which I mentioned when I accurately predicted that Jorge Lorenzo would be back on MotoGP race tracks after announcing his retirement as a way of saving face.

What I couldn’t have predicted was just how absurd the 2020 season became. I’ll admit, even by mid-season it had already gone far beyond my wildest expectations. This series of memes does an excellent job showing just how farcical the 2020 season was gotten before it was even nearing it’s conclusion.

MotoGP has had to deal with the entire season being postponed, the entire schedule being cut down, multiple instances of consecutive races at the same track, it’s best rider being out for most of the season due to an injury first blamed on opening a door and later blamed on the doctor’s, it’s most beloved rider catching COVID-19, a champion who was really barely a blip on the radar for most of the season, and the usual issues like turning a blind eye to Qatar’s blatant disregard for human decency.

Now we look forward to 2021, a new year, a new race season, and many of the same problems. Dorna Sports is still scrambling to deal with ever-changing international travel policies to make sure the show can go on, Marc Marquez has now undergone a third surgery on his humerous and isn’t expected to start at the opening race this season, and we’re all still supposed to pretend that MotoGP doesn’t know slavery is still a thing in Qatar.

Here is the MotoGP 2021 Schedule:

March 28 2021, Qatar GP at Losail International Circuit
April 4 2021, Doha GP at Losail International Circuit
April 18 2021, Portugal GP at Algarve International Circuit
May 2 2021, Spain GP at Circuito de Jerez
May 16 2021, France GP at Le Mans
May 30 2021, Italy GP at Autodromo del Mugello
June 6 2021, Catalunya GP at Barcelona – Catalunya
June 20 2021, German GP at Sachsenring
June 27 2021, Netherlands GP at TT Circuit Assen
July 11 2021, Finland GP at KymiRing
August 15 2021, Austria GP at Red Bull Ring – Spielberg
August 29 2021, Great Britain GP at Silverstone Circuit
September 12 2021, Aragon GP at MotorLand Aragon
September 19 2021, San Marino GP at Misano World Circuit
October 3 2021, Japan GP at Twin Ring Motegi
October 10 2021, Thailand GP at Chang International Circuit
October 24 2021, Australian GP at Phillip Island
October 31 2021, Malaysia GP at Sepang International Circuit
November 14 2021, Valencia GP at Comunitat Valenciana

Additional changes are possible as this season takes place in over a dozen countries which could all decide to close their borders to MotoGP at any moment. At the moment the Finnish GP in July and the Indonesian GP (no set date at time of publishing) are subject to homologation, meaning we may or may not see MotoGP racing in either nation this year.

MotoGP provisional schedule 2021

Unsurprisingly, the Argentine GP and Americas GP have both been postponed, but still appear on the schedule. Carmelo Ezpeleta, Dorna’s CEO had made it very clear months ago that unless the situation in the United States changes drastically, Dorna would not risk sending MotoGP to race in Texas. He also made it clear that without MotoGP Americas, there would be no racing in Argentina as the costs for a single race in the region would be prohibitive.
