MotoGP 22 is here! We're here to run you through every circuit that's included in this year's MotoGP game. There's a record-breaking 21-race calendar in 2022, and also historical circuits included in the game. Here's the full list!
The traditional curtain raiser in MotoGP again hosts the opening round of the season in 2022. The Losail International Circuit is also hosts the only night race in MotoGP, making the Qatar GP feel very unique.
After over 20 years off the calendar, the Indonesian Grand Prix returned to the roster for 2022. The Mandalika International Street Circuit in Lombok hosted the race in March.
This circuit is brand-new, having only been completed this year. It's technically a street circuit, and is made up of long straights and tight corners.
Rio Hondo, Argentina
The Argentine GP was cancelled twice in a row, but it was back for 2022. The Termas de Rio Hondo circuit in the north of the country has hosted this race since its comeback in 2014.
The Circuit of the Americas made a very welcome return to the calendar last year and went back-to-back with Argentina in 2022. The Grand Prix of the Americas is a great event and one that always provides exciting racing.
A circuit that was brought in to help pad out the calendar in both 2020 and 2021 now has a permanent spot on the roster. Portimao in Portugal is an excellent racing circuit and hosted the first European round of the 2022 MotoGP season.
The Spanish love their motorcycle racing and the Spanish GP is the first of four rounds to be hosted by a Spanish circuit in 2022. Jerez is made for MotoGP bikes, as they can tear around here like nothing else.
Le Mans, France
While it's more famous for hosting the 24-hour endurance race, Le Mans is also a popular home for MotoGP in France. The short circuit provides plenty of challenges and is really fun to drive on two wheels.
Possibly our favourite on the calendar and without a doubt up there with the best is Mugello. The home of the Italian GP since the 1990s, Mugello winds its way up and down the beautiful Tuscan mountains and has some of the best corners around.
The Catalan GP is the second of four races in Spain in MotoGP. The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya has hosted this event since it was devised in 1996. This is an excellent purpose-built circuit and one that has a great mix of corners.
The Sachsenring was once the home of the East German GP, but is now the host of the German Grand Prix. This tricky circuit darts through the forests and is one of the toughest circuits to master on a MotoGP bike.
The Dutch GP, a.k.a. The Dutch TT or TT Assen is back again this year at the world-famous Assen circuit. This is a classic old-school circuit and one that love pounding round on our MotoGP bikes.
Kymi Ring, Finland
After being delayed for three years in a row, the KymiRing has waited a very long time to host its first MotoGP race. After a hiatus of 40 years, the Finnish Grand Prix is set to finally make a return this year.
The fastest track on the MotoGP calendar is the thrilling Silverstone Circuit in the UK. Silverstone has hosted the British Motorcycle GP since its revamp in 2010 and we can't see it moving from this stunning venue anytime soon.
Red Bull Ring, Austria
The Red Bull Ring has become a real hub of motorsport since investment has poured into the Styrian track. This might just beat out Mugello for the best scenery of any circuit in the world, but we'll leave that up to you to decide.
The Austrian GP's track is built for motorcycles and is a pleasure to ride around.
Misano, San Marino
The second and final round of the MotoGP season in Italy takes place at Misano. Misano hosts the San Marino GP, despite being in Italy.
We're not complaining though, because Misano is a massive challenge to drive, but one we look forward to every year when this event rolls around.
Although a relative newcomer to the calendar, the Aragon GP has gone down a treat since coming into existence in 2010. Taking place in the Spanish desert, this is a hot and challenging race.
From the comfort of your living room though, MotorLand is a fun circuit to race around.
Spain to Japan in a week? Not a problem for MotoGP! The Twin Ring Motegi is set to return this year, as the Japanese MotoGP will return for the first time since 2019.
Motegi is a good circuit to drive and race around, while having a mix of high and low speed corners definitely makes the setup a big challenge.
MotoGP's first ever triple-header concludes with another circuit we've sorely missed over the past two years. The Chang International Circuit in Thailand promotes overtaking with its back-to-back long straights.
Don't rule out the famous weather in South-East Asia from making an appearance either.
Philip Island, Australia
MotoGP's Asian rounds have been missed, but it's probably the Australian GP that we have missed the most these past two years. Phillip Island is a blast from the past and not for the faint-hearted.
It's extremely narrow and high-speed with little to no run-off, meaning all mistakes are severely punished. This is definitely one you'll need to practice a lot around.
Formula 1's loss is definitely MotoGP's gain, as the Malaysian GP hosts the penultimate round of the 2022 MotoGP season. The Sepang International Circuit is a top-class venue and one we love racing around. The long straights promote overtaking, while the long corners challenge the best of riders.
Ricardo Tormo, Valencia
We make one final visit to Europe for the last round of the 2022 season. The Valencia GP has been hosted by the Circuit Ricardo Tormo since its inception in 1999.
The track is named after Spanish double world champion, who was from the Valencia area.
Three Historical Circuits were included in MotoGP 21 and those have returned for 22. Thanks to the new Nine Career Mode though, we've got two more to enjoy.
