This summer’s MotoGP debut at the new KymiRing in Finland has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“The decision to postpone the Finnish MotoGP race is made by Dorna Sports, which owns rights of the competition,” said brief statement issued by the organisers.

“The Finnish government has recommended that events for more than 500 people not be held before August due to a coronavirus pandemic. Decision to postpone the MotoGP Finland competition is made by Dorna Sports and race track owner KymiRing in accordance with the instructions of the Finnish Government.

“Dorna Sport has promised to announce the future of MotoGP Finland as soon as possible.”

Dorna has not yet made an announcement and has also not given any updates on when it believes the postoned races could run.

Currently, Assen and the Sachsenring do not have a new date in the schedule which will unofficially start at Brno in August.
