A provisional version of the 2015 MotoGP calendar has been released, with Brazil notably absent.

Brazil's return had been planned for this year - alongside a comeback for South American neighbour Argentina - only to be dropped in February due to construction delays.

With the Brasilia venue missing from even the provisional 2015 line-up, it is doubtful that the event will materialise. Brazil last hosted a MotoGP round at Rio in 2004.

Next year's MotoGP calendar is thus set to remain unchanged in terms of the 18 events, although Donington Park is replacing Silverstone as venue for the British Grand Prix.

The 2015 season will again start under the floodlights in Qatar, on March 29, and conclude at Valencia on November 8.

Notanmsvfan: The British Grand Prix on cadwell weekend and classic tt I will be at cadwell then[\blockquote]

Cadwell has been moved to 21st-23rd August so it doesn't clash.

alol: Looks exactly the same as this year. Complete with the 4 iberian rounds (yet) again.

Boring or what?[\blockquote]

When each Spanish round gets 120,000 plus spectators on race day, when the majority of the big sponsors are Spanish, when 3 of the top 4 riders are Spanish ... well, what did you expect?

alol:

Granted, unfortunately I guess I'm old enough to remember when a world championship meant one GP per country & usually alternate venues within that particular country![\blockquote]

Unfortuanately me too! Whilst you are right it was also the case that a championship season usually comprised no more than 8 or 9 rounds and almost all of them were restricted to Europe.
