MotoGP have announced their provisional calendar for the 2018 season.

The new schedule confirms the date of the new race in Thailand, that will take place on the first weekend in October, making it the first of four back to back races in the Asian Pacific region.

Australia’s MotoGP round at Phillip Island will have a slight change, moving a week later to avoid its current clash with the Supercars round on the Gold Coast.

The rest of the schedule remains relatively unchanged for this year, with the season to kick off under lights in Qatar and then wrap up Valencia.
