A PROVISIONAL 2018 MotoGP calendar has been released, with the British round at a venue 'To Be Announced'.

The British MotoGP is set for its usual late-August date, but with the venue still to be decided following the Circuit of Wales fallout. The choice is understood to be between continuing with Silverstone under a new deal or switching to Donington Park.

The inaugural Thailand MotoGP at Buriram is set to be held on October 5-7 and is the only new addition to the present 18-race line-up.

As rumoured, Thailand will precede the usual Japan-Australia-Malaysia run, with a weekend off separating the new event from the established triple header.

The 2018 season is pencilled-in to start in Qatar on March 18 and finish at Valencia on November 18.

The summer break has been slashed from four weekends to just two.

Finland is due to join the MotoGP calendar in 2019.
