The 2020 Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas Has Been Canceled

Rennie Scaysbrook | July 8, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has unexpectedly claimed the 2020 Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas. After being postponed to November 15-18 from the original April 3-5, the changing Coronavirus situation across the globe and in particular here in the U.S. has forced MotoGP rights holders Dorna to call time on the 2020 race. The event will return to Circuit of The Americas on April 16-18, 2021.

“Big news! The fastest bikes in the world will return next year for an even bigger MotoGP Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas on April 16-18, 2021!,” wrote Circuit of The Americas on their Instagram page. This year’s event on November 13-15, 2020 has been canceled. Ticket holders will receive an email with further information. #AmericasGP”

COTA Round Of MotoAmerica Series Canceled

COTA Round Of MotoAmerica Series Canceled
MotoAmerica and MotoGP won’t be racing at the Circuit of The Americas in 2020.

The following is an announcement from MotoAmerica…

With the announcement coming today from Dorna and the Circuit of The Americas that the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas, scheduled for November 13-15, has been canceled, MotoAmerica is also announcing that it will not be racing at the Austin, Texas, facility in 2020.

MotoAmerica, however, is working diligently on options to keep its 20-race HONOS Superbike Series intact for 2020.

“It’s a shame that we have to cancel the MotoAmerica round at COTA,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “The race is a highlight of our schedule and it’s always good to combine our efforts with Dorna to put on a great show in Austin. COVID-19 has made it virtually impossible for the MotoGP series to travel to the U.S. so we fully understand the issues they are facing in 2020. We look forward to returning to COTA with MotoGP in 2021. In the meantime, we are working on a solution to find a replacement round as we continue to strive towards having a 20-race Superbike Series.”

The COTA round was scheduled to be the MotoAmerica HONOS Superbike Series finale. The 2020 MotoAmerica Series continues with round three of the championship at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, July 31-August 2.
