Revised 2020 MotoGP World Championship Calendar Announced

Rennie Scaysbrook | June 11, 2020

Dorna has announced 13 races to comprise the 2020 MotoGP World Championship calendar after the Covid-19 pandemic threatened the existence of this year’s series.

2020 MotoGP World Championship
We’re going racing! MotoGP will be back in action next month, starting at Jerez.

With two races held per venue aside from Catalunya, France, Czech Republic, and Qatar (which already held its Moto2 and Moto3 round back in March), the abbreviated calendar will be one of the shortest in decades, with seven races being held in Spain/Catalunya.

The possibility of holding events outside Europe will be assessed and confirmed before July 31. However, the 2020 season will not finish later than the 13th of December and will comprise a maximum of 17 events (including the Grand Prix of Qatar).

All dates and events, as well as the eventual attendance of spectators, are subject to the evolution of the pandemic and the approval of corresponding governments and authorities.

But at least there’s now some confirmation—we’re going racing!
