After yesterday’s news that the Argentine MXGP round had been postponed, the MotoGP round at Termas De Rio Hondo has also been put back until November 22 due to the coronavirus outbreak.
It means the season finale at Valencia will now run during the last weekend in November, which is pushing the weather, even for southern Spain.
The season will now begin at Jerez on May 3.
A statement from the FIM reads:
Premio Motul de la Republica Argentina, which was set to take place from the 17th to the 19th of April. Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, the event has been rescheduled for later in the season and will now take place from the 20th to the 22nd of November.
The Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana will therefore now be held from the 27th to the 29th of November.
The Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas retains its new date from the 13th to the 15th of November, a week before the rescheduled Gran Premio Motul de la Republica Argentina.
Following these schedule changes, the 2020 MotoGP™ class season is now set to begin with the Gran Premio Red Bull de España at the Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto from the 1st to the 3rd of May 2020.
