2016 MotoGP World Championship Calendar Confirmed

Byron Wilson | February 10, 2016

Back on November 2, 2015, the FIM released a provisional calendar for the 2016 MotoGP World Championship, and that schedule has now been confirmed as final. Contracts with Jerez and Brno were still being sorted at that point, but both have now been settled. The series heads to the Red Bull Ring in Austria on August 14, the only circuit new to the calendar when set against the 2015 schedule, and Silverstone will again host the British Grand Prix. This is to remain the case until at least 2018, when the Circuit of Wales is projected to be able to host the event, according to a recent BBC report. The BBC revealed on February 8, 2016 that the Circuit of Wales got some significant financial backing from Aviva, a large insurance company in the UK, which would finally allow for construction to begin soon.
