Despite this being 13 years ago, most of these circuits and races are still on the calendar. Qatar's Losail is still the curtain-raiser for the season, while Valencia bookends it.

Furthermore, circuits that have been included as historical tracks, such as Britain's Donnington and the USA's Laguna Seca, are also present here.

Out of the 17 circuits from 2009, only two weren't in MotoGP 21. These are Indianapolis and Estoril. Thankfully though, Milestone have added these as new Historical circuits, so the full 2009 calendar is in MotoGP 22.
