The provisional 2021 FIM MotoGP™ World Championship calendar has been released announcing that the Australian round is set to be held at the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit on Sunday 24 October 2021*.
The 2021 Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix event dates are 22-24 October 2021*, which are set to be formally ratified by FIM in coming weeks.
DORNA Sports CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta said: “After a long and difficult year and season for so many people around the world and all those in our sport, I’m very happy to be able to start looking ahead to 2021 and making plans for MotoGP™ to return to some of our most iconic venues around the world. That of course includes Phillip Island, one of the most beautiful places and tracks we visit on our calendar and a favourite of riders, fans and all those able to visit the spectacular event. I would like to thank our partners and fans for their patience in this difficult time and I now join them in looking forward to returning to Victoria in October next year for another stunning weekend of MotoGP™ Down Under.”
Australian Grand Prix Corporation CEO Andrew Westacott said: “We couldn’t be happier to see the championship return to Australian shores in 2021 and we look forward to welcoming the teams and the incredible fans back to Phillip Island to support the important recovery of major events and tourism in regional Victoria.”
“The Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix will be back bigger than ever next year with 2021 marking the first time countryman Jack Miller has raced for the factory Ducati team on home soil.”
“Fan favourite Valentino Rossi has confirmed he will be racing with a new team, Marc Marquez will be coming back from injury and we’ll also be welcoming a new MotoGP™ world champion. Aussie young gun Remy Gardner is also proving himself as one to watch in Moto2 and yet another reason for fans to head down to Phillip Island.”
Further announcements will be made in due course regarding event arrangements and ticket on-sale dates for the 2021 Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix.
