Portugal chose to open MotoGP season

The Portuguese Grand Prix will be the opening event of the 2023 Motorcycle World Speed ​​Championship, with the MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 categories.

 

The race will take place between March 24 and 26 of next year and will mark the beginning of the World Cup, which, for the first time since 2006, will start in Europe.

This will be the fourth consecutive year that the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve (AIA) has hosted the world's biggest motorcycling competition, since MotoGP returned to Portugal in 2020, after being absent since 2012.


Portimão is also scheduled to hold two days of pre-season tests, which should take place the week before the Grand Prix, on dates yet to be announced.

In a statement, the Fédération Internationale de Motociclsimo (FIM) reveals that the full calendar will be announced “in due course” but that the first race “is already confirmed”.
