Hamburg – A cancellation of the motorcycle world championship season 2020 is only the last of all options for the organizers.
Rights holder Dorna Sports said: “If the pandemic puts our lives and sports on hold longer than we can all predict and travel restrictions remain, Dorna Sports would only consider cancelling the 2020 season with FIM as a last resort to discuss IRTA and MSMA. » However, it is planned to organize as many races as possible.
Three races have already been cancelled, but have already received new dates: in Isan, Thailand (October 4), in Austin, Texas (November 15) and in Termas de Río Hondo in Argentina (November 22). The French Grand Prix at Le Mans (May 15th), Italy (May 31st) and Catalonia (May 7th) has been postponed indefinitely. According to the current racing calendar, it would be driven on the Sachsenring in Germany on June 21.
No race has yet been held in the MotoGP class this year. The opening races of the Moto2 and Moto3 classes could still be started in Qatar in early March.
