Grand Prix of Qatar 2020: Updates & Revised Schedule
- Updated: March 3, 2020
The Grand Prix of Qatar 2020 was supposed to take place from 6th to 8th March 2020 at the Losail International Circuit. This was scheduled to be the opening race of the season and under the floodlights featuring the best riders on the planet riding the most technologically advanced and fastest prototypes in the world. Its 19-round season visits a total of 16 countries across four continents, showcasing the planet’s fastest motorcycle racers in its three categories comprising the Moto3, Moto2 and MotoGP World Championships – as the pinnacle of motorcycle racing.
FIM, IRTA and Dorna have announced the cancellation of all MotoGP class sessions at the Grand Prix of Qatar 2020, including the race.
The ongoing coronavirus outbreak has resulted in Qatar travel restrictions being brought into force that affect passengers from Italy, amongst other countries. As of 2nd March 2020, all passengers arriving at Doha on direct flights from Italy, or having been in Italy in the past 2 weeks, will be taken straight to quarantine for a minimum of 14 days. Italy clearly plays a vital role in the Championship and in the MotoGP class – both on track and off – and therefore the decision has been taken to cancel premier class competition.
As the teams and riders of the Moto2 and Moto3 classes were already in Qatar for the three-day official test at Losail International Circuit earlier this week, the races of both categories will be possible. The lightweight and intermediate classes will therefore compete in their season opener from the 6th to 8th March. The same will apply to the Idemitsu Asia Talent Cup, which will have two races during the Qatar Grand Prix as originally planned.
