There will be no visit to Silverstone for the MotoE World Championship next season after the British venue left off the provisional 2024 MotoE calendar.
The all-electric series joined its MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 counterparts at Silverstone this season for the first time since its inauguration in 2019 as part of its eight-round, 16 race schedule.
However, while the 2024 MotoE World Championship will again feature double-headers at eight of next year's MotoGP rounds, Silverstone has been dropped in favour of Portimao, which will kick the season off on 22-23 March.
It means an earlier than usual start to the MotoE season, which has previously not joined the Grand Prix programme until May, though it will conclude again at Misano in September.
After Portugal, the programme follows a similar course to that of this year's schedule, though Jerez has been swapped out for a return to the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
Otherwise, next season will see a quick return to Le Mans, Mugello, Assen, Sachsenring, Spielberg and Misano.
The 2023 MotoE World Championship - won by Mattia Casadei - heralded the introduction of the new bespoke Ducati V21L MotoE prototype, replacing the production-based Energica Ego, while it was also the first to be designated full FIM World Championship status.
