MotoGP will once again have four grands prix in Spain in 2022. Dorna Sports, which is confident of being able to find a formula for alternating circuits to explore new markets, is betting one more year on racing in Valencia, Catalonia, Jerez and Aragon, as confirmed in the presentation of its calendar. It will be the season with the most races, with a total of 21.

Among the novelties will be the Mandalika Circuit of Indonesia, where it has not been possible to run due to the pandemic and which will debut in 2022. In addition, Argentina will return after two years without being due to the pandemic. Portugal has managed to keep the Portimao circuit after including it as an alternative in 2020, when MotoGP had to celebrate the entire competition in Europe.

On the other hand, Japan, Australia and Thailand will also return after two years canceled, since the restrictions due to Covid-19 have prevented travel to both countries, as well as to Indonesia or Argentina. If all the tests are confirmed, it will be the World Cup with the highest number of grand prizes after the 2018 and 2019 editions, when it reached a total of 19. In the pandemic, 15 races could be run and, this year, the minimum marked has been saved, with 18.
