How excited are the MotoGP™ grid to be returning to America?

The major change to note is on Thursday when the Press Conference previewing Round 15 of the MotoGP™ World Championship starts at the earlier time of 12:00 local time (GMT-5), rather than the usual 17:00. From then on, the schedule follows the same timings as usual. MotoGP™ have their first taste of COTA in two years at 09:55 local time on Friday, before they roll out of pitlane for FP2 at 14:10 local time on Friday afternoon.

All of the frantic qualifying action in the premier class kicks off at 14:10 on Saturday, before the MotoGP™ race fires into life at 14:00 local time on Sunday. All of the weekend's timings are below and are set in local time for Austin, Texas, at GMT-5.
