MotoE announces provisional 2023 calendar

2023 marks first season that all-electric motorcycling series is granted world championship status.

MotoE has announced an eight-round, 16-race competition for 2023, a season in which it will be granted world championship status for the first time.

The International Motorcyling Federation (FIM) follows the lead set by the International Automobile Federation (FIA), which granted the open wheel variant of all-electric racing, Formula E, world championship status two years ago.

2023 will see the debut of the Silverstone Circuit on the MotoE calendar. It will likely run similarly to MotoGP, which is using the Formula One layout of the circuit for the first time next season.

The season will also mark the entrance of Ducati, the championship's new sole manufacturer.

The season starts from 12th to 14th May at Le Mans in France, and it concludes with the San Marino event from 8th to 10th September.

Interestingly, the series is given world championship status despite only racing in Europe.

Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, which was recently ranked the most sustainable racing circuit in the world, moves position in the calendar to the penultimate race of the season.
