2022 MotoGP Argentine Grand Prix: When is it, start time and more

The Argentine GP will take place at Termas de Rio Hondo, which first featured on the calendar back in 2014, but has been absent since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

MotoGP had hoped to stage the Argentina race last year, but had to scrap it due to ongoing travel disruptions brought about by the COVID pandemic – though World Superbikes did manage to get its round in the country in.

Since the last Argentine GP, the pit building at Termas de Rio Hondo was ravaged by a fire at the start of 2021.

Coming into the Argentina weekend, Gresini Ducati’s Enea Bastianini continues to lead the standings by two points after a difficult outing in the wet Indonesian GP, while KTM’s Brad Binder is his closest rival.

Honda announced ahead of the event on Tuesday that six-time world champion Marc Marquez will not race this weekend in Argentina as he continues to recover from double vision issues he suffered as a result of a massive crash in Indonesia.
