Provisional 2011 MotoGP Calendar Leaked Valentino Rossi tuck Laguna Seca 560x382

While the official Provisional 2011 MotoGP Calendar isn’t expected to go public until later this week, we’ve gotten an inside look at the relatively unchanged MotoGP schedule for next season. Our right and honorable friends at MotoMatters were on the ball this morning when travel agents for MotoGP trips got the provisional calendar in their hands, with some already publishing it to the web (travel agents typically get the calendar before the paddock does, since their industry depends on knowing the schedule as early as possible).

There aren’t too many surprises in the 2011 calendar, but the most noteworthy change is the Qatar GP being moved up three weeks to March 20th, to better compete with the start of World Superbike Championship series. The Portuguese GP at Estoril also moves toward the front of the calendar, which seems to happen every other year now. Lastly, Motegi is on the docket, barring any unforeseen volcanic eruptions. We have yet to see when the TwitGP is scheduled for in 20011. Check the full provisional 2011 MotoGP Calendar after the jump.

    Interesting to note that Laguna and Indy are still a month apart – I thought Dorna wanted to save money ? Moving everything to and from the USA twice when there is no need to is stupid and/or careless. So much for money saving matters – i.e. less testing.

  3. John says:

    Take out a world map and connect the dots from one race to another. It creates an illogical geometric mess. If the races flowed from one country to the next it would give an unfair advantage to Spies. Spies would be able to easily associate this with the shape of an animal and win every race. Dorna would lose millions if Spies dominated the entire series.

  4. Craig says:

    Unless, John, Dorna bans ice cream and styrofoam cups from the paddock.
