thailandAlthough not on the first 2016 calendar, Thailand will return again to the GP schedule, but last year’s winner Ryan Villopoto will not be there.

You can throw the first 2016 World Motocross Championship race schedule away because there is a new one that virtually moves 75 percent of the dates and drops Sweden, Spain and South Africa, but adds Thailand (at yet another different track), Malaysia, Switzerland and Charlotte Motor Speedway (on a Saturday). Yes, you read that right!

There currently are 7 fly-away races for the GP teams to budget for in 2016 (Qatar, Thailand, Malaysia, Argentina, Mexico, Charlotte and Glen Helen). The Swedish GP was dropped, as was Talavera in Spain and the proposed stadium Grand Prix in South Africa did not materialize. There is one To Be Announced (TBA) date on May 29, which if there are no takers from any other place will end up in Italy (which always fills holes at the last minute). That would put 3 GPs in Italy along with the Motocross des Nations on September 25, 2016.

Races held in or near auto circuits include Losail, Sepang, Assen and Charlotte. There are 19 GPs on the 2016 schedule—plus the MXDN on September 25.
