2023 Red Bull MotoGP Rookies calendar revealed!

The season starts in Portugal and is set to make some history

2023 will see the 17th season of Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup action. The coming year begins with the preseason test in Portimão, which will also host the two opening races at the Portuguese Grand Prix, before the Rookies move on to Jerez and around Europe.

Sunday at the Spanish Grand Prix features race 4 of 2023, which will also hit a milestone as the 200th Rookies Cup race.

Next the Rookies take on Le Mans for the first time since 2008, which was the second season of the competition and featured a single race at the classic French venue.

Then it’s on to the more familiar stamping grounds of Mugello, Assen and Spielberg before ending the year on the Adriatic coast in Misano.

The calendar promises another 14 fabulous action packed races with 26 of the world’s fastest teenagers determined to learn and prove their worth before stepping up to the World Championship classes, like more than 50% of past Rookies have done. 26 of them have won 161 GPs and 10 World Championships! 38 Nations have been represented in the Rookies Cup to date and, including the 2023 entry list, 237 super fast teens will have had the chance to race on some of the worlds greatest Grand Prix circuits on the Moto3 spec KTMs.
