Sprint races to be introduced at all Grands Prix from 2023

The FIM, IRTA, MSMA and Dorna Sports can now announce a new Sporting Format to be introduced for the FIM MotoGP™ World Championship from 2023. Sprint races will be introduced at all Grands Prix, creating an exciting, action-packed programme for fans on every day of a MotoGP™ race weekend and maintaining a consistent format across the calendar. Sprint races will take place at 15:00 on the Saturday of each Grand Prix and be approximately 50% of the full race distance. The Sprint race will have a 15-minute grid procedure, and the sporting rules will be the same as a full-length Grand Prix race on Sunday. – 1st Position: 12- 2nd Position: 9- 3rd Position: 7- 4th Position: 6- 5th Position: 5- 6th Position: 4- 7th position: 3- 8th position: 2- 9th position: 1. Sprint races will not determine the grid for the Grand Prix race. The grids for both the Sprint race and the Grand Prix race will be set from qualifying, which will retain its Q1-Q2 format. The Sprint Race will then take place at 15:00, creating an incredible line-up of MotoGP™ track action on Saturday. Sunday will remain a spectacle for fans and broadcasters, with the Moto3™, Moto2™ and MotoGP™ Grand Prix races.
