New date for Silverstone MotoGP

World champion Valentino Rossi
Valentino Rossi won his seventh MotoGP title this season

The 2010 British MotoGP at Silverstone has been put back two weeks and will now be staged on Sunday, 20 June.

Several other changes have been made to the provisional calendar, affecting the dates of the races in France, Italy, Czech Republic and San Marino.

Silverstone is replacing Donington Park as the venue for the British MotoGP.

The Northamptonshire track is also in line to host a Formula 1 race in 2010, with talks ongoing about plans to stage the British Grand Prix.

The MotoGP season is due to start in Qatar on 11 April and end in Valencia on 7 November.


The date of the Czech GP has also been moved, meaning there are no longer two blocks of three successive race weekends during the season.

And there may still be more changes made to the calendar after the draw for the 2010 football World Cup in South Africa takes place in Cape Town on 4 December.
