The fourteenth round of the 2023 MotoGP season will take place in Motegi, Japan, implying that the series will have raced in Asia for two consecutive weekends. After Francesco Bagnaia's accident at the Indian Grand Prix, the title race is back in the spotlight with a thirteen-point margin between the top two riders. The winner of the most recent Grand Prix, Marco Bezzecchi, is also in the race for the championship. He is currently 44 points behind the leader. Due to the races being held in East Asia, we will be able to see a lot of action over the course of the weekend. Rain is also predicted to make an appearance on track at Motegi, among other weather variations. The MotoGP weekend will proceed somewhat similarly to normal, despite the fact that all sessions will take place at unusually early periods for Indian fans due to the time difference with Japan. There will be two 45-minute open practices during the weekend, one on Friday morning and another on Saturday morning.

MotoGP: Motegi Race Track

MotoGP Japanese GP Motegi Race Track

The Japanese twin-ring circuit at Motegi features both an oval track (with a distance of 2.49km) and a road course (with a distance of 4.80km) built to international specifications and set amid the immense natural beauty of the northern Kanto province. The oval was created to transfer American motorsports culture to the country and was built by Honda in August 1997 as the ideal test facility. The road track has hosted MotoGP since 1999.

Due to the fact that drivers need to use the pit and front straight of the road course to get to the oval, it's impossible to have races on both tracks at the same time. Similarly to the oval, the road course travels clockwise rather than anti-clockwise.

The road course also hosts numerous Japanese national bike racing series, as well as the MotoGP, which typically makes an annual appearance. From 2000 to 2003, it hosted the Pacific Motorcycle Grand Prix, and since 2004, it has been a consistence venue for the Japanese Grand Prix.
