The 'final' version of the 2020 MotoGP calendar has been confirmed.

Dates and venues for the biggest ever 20-round grand prix season remain as listed on last year's provisional line-up, but with the Czech Republic Grand Prix at Brno no longer 'subject to contract'.

However, a slight question mark still hangs over the new event at the KymiRing in Finland, since the circuit remains 'subject to FIM Homologation'.

After official pre-season tests at Sepang and Losail, the 2020 season is set to begin with the usual Qatar night race, in early March.

The Thai Grand Prix has been moved forward from October to March 22 to become round two, before MotoGP moves on to Austin, which remains as round three after swapping places with Argentina.

Sachsenring has likewise been moved before Assen, with the KymiRing event due to be held on July 12, followed by a three-weekend summer break.

Buriram's change of date means the end of season flyaway schedule reverts to the previous Motegi-Phillip Island-Sepang tripleheader.

The championship then concludes in Valencia, in mid-November.

Official post-race tests are scheduled for the Monday after Jerez and Barcelona, followed by a tyre test (test teams only) at the KymiRing on June 15-16 and a private MotoGP test at Misano on September 15-16.
