Austin should have been first 2020 MotoGP race of the season but the start of the Championship has been delayed once again. Coronavirus is strongly compromising the regular season with Qatar GP already being deleted from the 2020 MotoGP calendar and Thailand GP postponed to October and also Americas GP has been officially delayed to 15th November. The city of Austin declared the emergency state and it seemed impossible that MotoGP could have his race on 5th April.
The beginning of the 2020 MotoGP season is now fixed for 19th April with Argentina GP at Termas de Rio Hondo who should be the first race of the MotoGP World Championship, even if there are a lot of doubts about it, first of all considering that also Argentina is affected by Coronavirus cases.
Carmelo Ezpeleta sadly announced it to AS: “We have to postpone Texas at the end of the year. In the evening we will make an official state with the FIM”.
Americas GP will probably not be the last race to be postponed with the actual situation who could change minute after minute, so there is nothing certain about the future of the 2020 MotoGP season.
