MotoGP Austin Canceled 2020

North American MotoGP fans will have to wait until 2021 for the next race.

The FIM, IRTA (IRTA is the association that comprises all teams, major technical suppliers, and sponsors participating in MotoGP), and Dorna Sports have announced that the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas won’t take place this year.Red Bull Content Pool

After initial postponement (read the “Austin MotoGP Race Postponed 2020” article), MotoGP announced that the sole North American MotoGP round at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, will be canceled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The global health crisis has affected the MotoGP series hard with it being unable to commence the 2020 racing season (beyond a few digital races) as of the publish date of this article. However the series will begin its condensed 13-round series this coming weekend in Jerez, Spain.

The series will stay in Europe for the remainder of the summer/fall season, before possibly departing the continent for four additional rounds to be confirmed by the end of July. The Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas, Gran Premio Motul de la Republica Argentina, Thailand Grand Prix, and Shell Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prix are all being considered, noted MotoGP in a news article on its website.

Curiously, this contradicts its official Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas canceled statement. More as this news unfolds.
