That will be the third weekend of the season, after the Argentine MotoGP race at Termas de Rio Honda.
A new race has been added, the Austrian GP at the Red Bull Ring on August 14, 2016.
Still pending negotiations as of September 2015 are the Jerez and Brno races. The Silverstone race has been moved from August to July 17th, just before the summer break.
Assen always had the MotoGP races on Saturday but that is now changed and all races will take place on Sunday.
