List of Grand Prix motorcycle circuits

This is a list of circuits which have hosted a World Championship race from 1949 to 2013 .

In total, 68 different circuits have hosted World Championship races. The first to do so was the Snaefell Mountain Course, home of the Isle of Man TT, which has also the distinction, at almost 61 km long, of being the longest track which hosted a World Championship race. The TT Circuit Assen has the distinction of being the only track which has hosted a race every year since 1949.

Various different forms of race track have been used throughout the history of the World Championship; purpose-built race tracks such as Suzuka, road tracks such as Spa and city street tracks such as Montjuïc.
