1972 F.I.M. Grand Prix motorcycle racing season
Previous: 1971 Next: 1973

The 1972 Grand Prix motorcycle racing season was the 24th F.I.M. Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix season. The season consisted of twelve Grand Prix races in six classes: 500cc, 350cc, 250cc, 125cc, 50cc and Sidecars 500cc. It began on 30 April, with West German Grand Prix and ended with Spanish Grand Prix on 23 September.

Season summary[edit]

Another year, another championship for Giacomo Agostini, taking his seventh consecutive 500cc crown for MV Agusta.[1] Things were tighter in the 350cc class with Jarno Saarinen giving Agostini a strong challenge.[1] In the 250cc division, Saarinen would win a tight race in a season-long battle with Rod Gould and Renzo Pasolini.[1] Angel Nieto claimed a double, winning the 125cc and 50cc championships for Derbi before the Spanish factory announced its pull out from Grand Prix racing.[1] The Yamaha factory won its first-ever 500cc Grand Prix victory when Chas Mortimer won the 500cc Spanish Grand Prix for the Japanese manufacturer.[2]
