Following yesterday’s cancellation of the MotoGP class races in Qatar, series bosses have this morning confirmed the Thailand round has also been postponed due to the coronavirus scare.

“As the global outbreak of coronavirus continues to develop, the Thai government has communicated that it won’t be possible to hold the OR Thailand Grand Prix on its original date,” said a statement.

“The FIM, IRTA and Dorna therefore regret to announce that the event, due to be held on the 22nd of March in Buriram, has been postponed.

“The FIM, IRTA and Dorna are currently evaluating if an alternative date is possible for the event later this season.”

It is looking more and more likely the first round of MotoGP in 2020 will be at Jerez in May.
