Would be cool if they could have an event here in Belgium, both Zolder and Spa are splendid circuits

The 2017 MotoGP calendar is now officially confirmed. The FIM removed the provisional status of the calendar after Dorna finalized contracts with the two remaining circuits still left with an asterisk: Silverstone and Sepang.
The situation with Sepang had been settled earlier, with Sepang keen to retain a MotoGP race for the long term. Sepang has grown to become one of the best-attended races on the calendar. So large are the crowds that they now easily outnumber attendance for F1, which the circuit is trying to drop.
Silverstone was the last race to be finalized. Representatives from the Circuit of Wales, which holds the contract for the British round of MotoGP, had traveled to the Movistar Yamaha launch in Madrid, where they met with Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta.
There, they finalized arrangements for this year’s round of MotoGP. Despite the Circuit of Wales still only existing on paper, the British round will continue to be nominally hosted by the circuit for as long as they keep complying with their financial obligations to Dorna. Until the circuit is finished, the race is likely to stay at Silverstone.
Below is the now official MotoGP calendar for 2017:
