The configuration of the calendar is one of the most important challenges of each season for Dorna, the promoter of the championship, and of what awaits the World Cup caravan in 2023, something is already known officially, such as that Portimao will be the opening date on the 26 of March, and other novelties begin to sound. The one that has the most weight in the Silverstone paddock at the moment is the introduction of a GP in Kazakhstan, which has almost completed and approved the Sokol circuit, located 75 km from the economic and cultural capital of the Central Asian country, Almaty. His arrival could be to the detriment of the appointment in Finland, announced so many times in recent times but without completing his reappearance on the calendar.

The Kazakh circuit has been created and supervised by Dorna and the FIM and designed by specialist Hermann Tilke. It is 4,495 kilometers long and is made up of 8 right-hand corners and 4 left-hand corners, with a double left-hand corner standing out on the map, at number 12, and a long counter-straight line in which the MotoGP motorcycles can set a record for top speed.

Kazakh billionaire Dastan Ibragimov wanted to bring MotoGP to his country and he is closer to achieving it. At the moment, Carmelo Ezpeleta neither affirms nor denies when AS asks him about it, which is an unequivocal sign that the matter is on the table.
