Dates for three days of official testing action can now be revealed, as well as pre-season dates for the Moto2™ and Moto3™ classes
A few more dates for the diary can now be revealed, with in-season tests for the MotoGP™ class throughout 2024 confirmed. As previously announced, the premier class will have three days of in-season testing next season, bringing the total across the year to nine days of official tests.
This one day increase versus 2023 has been agreed with factories, teams, riders and official premier class tyre supplier Michelin in order to test a new front tyre specification ahead of its expected introduction in 2025.
The 2024 in-season tests will all take place directly following the Grand Prix at the same venue.
Monday 29th April: Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto
Monday 3rd June: Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello
Monday 9th September: Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli
The three days of in-season action are in addition to the pre-season tests already confirmed, creating the following official test calendar for the premier class in 2024:
Shakedown Test: Thursday 1st – Saturday 3rd of February (test riders & rookies only)
Official Pre-Season Test: Tuesday 6th – Thursday 8th of February
Official Pre-Season Test: Monday 19th – Tuesday 20th of February
Official Test: Monday 29th April
Official Test: Monday 3rd June
Official Test: Monday 9th September
As ever, a final day of testing will also take place following the season finale at the same circuit, which in 2024 will be the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia.
In 2023, the first test for the coming season will also round out the year as Valencia hosts our first glimpse of a history-making season on Tuesday the 28th of November – the first of those nine days and another date for the diary!
There, factories, teams and riders will start preparing for a blockbuster 2024 in which the sport will celebrate its 75th anniversary, stage 22 Grands Prix across 18 countries and begin the transition to 100% sustainable fuel. In 2024, it’s minimum 40% non-fossil origin. Get ready!
