MotoGP schedule 2023: Dates, start times, TV channels and how to watch every race

Kazakhstan and India have been added to the calendar for the 2023 MotoGP season, which runs between February and November.

There will be a record 21 races across the campaign, with 10 of those taking place outside of Europe and Aragon removed to leave three events in Spain.

The new inclusion of a sprint race means each weekend will feature two races for the first time, and the mid-season break will be held between Kazakhstan on July 9 and Silverstone at the start of August.

Here’s what to expect from the 2023 MotoGP schedule, where and when the races are taking place and how to follow the action.
