MotoGP: Extra Testing Days Added In Qatar

© 2021, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc. From a press release issued By Dorna:

Qatar Test schedule updated 

Two Official Test days and a Shakedown Test have been added to the calendar 

Thursday, 14 January 2021

Following a recent meeting between the Championship organisation and the MotoGP™ Class Teams, changes to the Qatar Test schedule have been agreed. Two extra Official Test days and a Shakedown Test day will now also be held at Losail International Circuit in March, ahead of and in addition to the previously confirmed Qatar Test, allowing the teams extra preparation ahead of the 2021 season.

On the 5th of March, a Shakedown Test will take place in which participation will be limited solely to test riders and MotoGP™ class rookies.

On the 6th and 7th of March, all riders may participate in two extra Official Test days.

The new MotoGP™ class test schedule is therefore as follows:

3rd-4th March: Setup

5th March: Shakedown Test – rookies and test riders only

6th-7th March: Official Test

10th-12th March: Official Test

Any further updates or information will be provided as soon as available.
