MotoGP: Time schedule: changes to the GP Michelin de Aragon

Sunday sees the MotoGP race take place at an earlier time at MotorLand Aragon

Before the paddock jets off to Asia and Australia for four fly-away races, the Gran Premio Michelin® de Aragon is ready to be tackled as we see a schedule change for the MotoGP race on Sunday.

Friday sees a normal European schedule take place as the Moto3 riders kick off the track action at 09:00 local time (GMT+2) with FP1, with MotoGP (09:55) and Moto2 (10:55) following suit. The premier class will battle for Friday honours at 14:10.

Likewise, Saturday also follows a usual pattern. FP3s take place between 09:00-11:35 before qualifying for the Aragon GP begins at 12:35 with Moto3 Q1. The all-important MotoGP Q2 bursts into action at 14:35 after FP4 (13:30) and Q1 (14:10), with Moto2 qualifying going green at 15:05.


Sunday is where we see the schedule change. Moto3, as usual, will head out first for Warm Up at 09:00, but it will be the MotoGP riders who then come out second at 09:30 – not Moto2. The intermediate class will get their Warm Up underway at 10:00 ahead of the Moto3 race, which begins at 11:20 – not the usual 11:00 slot. MotoGP will race at 13:00, with Moto2 the last race of the day in Aragon at 14:30.
