MotoGP bosses have this morning been forced to postpone the Jerez MotoGP round due to kick off the season on May 3.

A statement reads

Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, the event at the Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto has been postponed.

The FIM, IRTA and Dorna Sports regret to announce the postponement of the Red Bull Gran Premio de España, which was set to be held at the Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto from the 1st to the 3rd of May. The ongoing coronavirus outbreak has obliged the event to be rescheduled.

As the situation remains in a state of constant evolution, a new date for the Spanish GP cannot be confirmed until it becomes clearer when exactly it will be possible to hold the event. A revised calendar will be published as soon as available.
