Dorna has announced it will make official representations to the Spanish governent for MotoGP and WorldSBK events at Jerez at the end of July.

After an electronic meeting this morning between Juan Antonio Marín, Vice President of the Regional Government of Andalusia; Mamen Sánchez Díaz, Mayor of Jerez de la Frontera; and Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO of Dorna Sports.

The three parties have agreed to make a proposal to the Spanish government to organise two MotoGP races at the circuit on the weekends of the 19th and 26th of July, respectively.

Also proposed is a WorldSBK round at the venue, to be held on the 2nd of August in place of the Oschersleben round which can’t take place due to Germany’s mass-gathering restrictions that will still be active.

Once authorisation from the Spanish government has been given, the three events will be proposed to the FIM for inclusion on their respective calendars.

The first MotoGP event would be the Grand Prix of Spain, becoming the season opener for the MotoGP class, and the second would be the Grand Prix of Andalusia.
