UPDATE: Final 2013 MotoGP calendar released.
A PROVISIONAL schedule for the 2013 MotoGP season has been released. Contrary to popular expectation, the four Spanish events are set to remain intact.
Potential changes from last season include expansion to 19 events from the previous 18, with the loss of the Portugese round at Estoril replaced by two 'To Be Confirmed' events early in the year.
It is likely that the new rounds will take place in Argentina and Texas, although it has also been suggested that India may be one of the new locations.
The British MotoGP at Silverstone has been moved from June 17 (round six) to September 1 (round 13).
