Instead, MotoGP will hold a test at the Algarve Circuit, Portimao, Portugal, on March 11-12, one month after the Sepang International Circuit will hold its first test next year on March 10-12.  Sepang will also be the arena for the Shakedown Test, specifically for MotoGP factory test riders and rookie riders on February 5-7.  Pre-season tests for the Moto2 and Moto3 classes will also take place in Portimao.  The selection of Portimao is in line with the 2023 season calendar which will open at the Portuguese circuit on March 24-26, instead of Qatar, which has been the opening race of the season since 2007.
