Le Mans Moto GP, May 19-20, 2018
Thousands of bikes converge on Le Mans for this 5th race of the Moto GP Championship. Don't forget there are 2 free rock concerts on Friday and Saturday also a stunt rider on Saturday. It's an event packed with entertainment. The general admission ticket is simply great value for money.
The French roads are good for biking and Le Mans is a relatively easy ride. From Calais, the distance to Le Mans is roughly 280 miles and from Caen it is just 105 miles. The crossing from Folkestone to Calais is a quick 35 minutes. The viewing on the legendary Le Mans circuit is excellent and the atmosphere is second to none.
The inaugural Thailand MotoGP is set to be held on October 5-7. The date is listed on the provisional 2018 MotoGP calendar, which confirms the Buriram round as the only new addition to the present 18-race line-up. As rumoured, Thailand will precede the usual Japan-Australia-Malaysia run, with a weekend off separating the new event from the established triple header.
The British MotoGP is set for its usual late-August date, but with the venue still to be decided following the Circuit of Wales fallout. The choice is understood to be continue with Silverstone under a new deal or switch to Donington Park.
The 2018 season is pencilled-in to start in Qatar on March 18th (one week earlier than this year) and finish at Valencia on November 18th (one week later). However, the summer break has been slashed from four weekends off to just two.
Finland is due to join the MotoGP calendar in 2019
