Bikes replace Formula 1 cars at Silverstone from 2010

The 2010 British MotoGP at Silverstone will take place earlier than usual after next year's provisional race schedule was published.

The race, which is also changing venues from Donington, is usually held in late June or July but will be round six of the 2010 championship on 6 June.

Qatar hosts the first race on 11 April and the last is Valencia on 7 November.

The list includes the Hungarian Grand Prix, pulled from the 2009 list because the venue was behind schedule.

MotoGP will replace Formula 1 at Silverstone after MotoGP championship promoters Dorna signed a 10-year contract with the Northamptonshire venue.


At the same time, F1 is moving to Donington in Leicestershire.

The venue hosted the most recent race of this year's championship, won by Repsol Honda rider Andrea Dovizioso.
