2017 is over, #2018StartsNow: test dates for your diary

After action comes to a close at Jerez, it’s time to look ahead to next season and get geared up for 2018

Tags MotoGP, 2018

Following the final few days of testing in 2017 for the majority of the grid at Jerez, it will soon be time for the official winter test ban to begin on 1st December - with just a private test for Yamaha at Sepang remaining. But never fear, MotoGP™ isn’t far away – with the first test of 2018 firing up in January - also at Sepang.

For some, that will mean a first glimpse at their new machines – for others another chance to compare parts and see what work over the winter has brought behind-the-scenes. And for all of us, it’s cause for some serious celebration as MotoGP™ gets back on track!

Here’s the full run-down of dates:

MotoGP™

28th-30th January –  Sepang
16th-18th February – Buriram
1st-3rd March – Qatar
