2017 MotoGP pre-season test schedule

Dates and locations for next year's official pre-season MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 tests.
The official 2017 MotoGP pre-season tests will be held on the following dates and locations:

1. Malaysia, Sepang: January 30-February 1
2. Australia, Phillip Island: February 15-17
3. Qatar, Losail: March 10-12

1. Spain, Jerez: March 9-10
2. Qatar, Losail: March 17-19

The venues will thus remain the same as this season, when the second Sepang MotoGP test was replaced by a new outing at Phillip Island.

Prior to 2017, the official post-season Valencia test will be held on November 15-16.

Valencia will see Jorge Lorenzo make his Ducati debut, Maverick Vinales at Yamaha, Andrea Iannone at Suzuki, Aleix Espargaro at Aprilia, Bradley Smith and Pol Espargaro at KTM - plus the first official MotoGP laps for rookies Alex Rins, Johann Zarco, Sam Lowes and Jonas Folger.

The 2017 racing season is scheduled to begin at Losail on the evening of March 26.

Plenty of big changes in team line ups, billion dollar questions will be 1. how is JL-DUC combo gonna work out? 2. how close is Vinales is going to get up to VR in initial days? Answer for these two will give us the solution of who is going to take on Marc for title fight in 2017.

I'm fully expecting Vinales to be the fastest Yamaha rider next year, - Lorenzo to be off the pace on the Ducati at Valencia till they can make changes. - Iannone to be instantly quick on the Suzuki I'll probably be a million miles off with these predictions (as always)
