Spain became one of the country with the major cases of Coronavirus during this month, with the ongoing emergency who forced Dorna and Spanish GP organizers to delay once again the beginning of 2020 MotoGP World Championship.
After the cancellation of Qatar GP and the postponements of Thailand GP, Americas GP and Argentina GP, Jerez should have hosted the first race of the season, but it looked a really tough challenge due to Coronavirus emergency who is affecting the whole world.
That is why pretty much everyone was waiting for an official statement about Spanish GP to be postponed which came during the morning with Dorna, FIM and IRTA who will publish an updated calendar as soon as possible.
We do not know at this stage when Jerez’s race will be raced, with French GP which is now the first one of the season, apparently. Anyway, it is unlikely that we could see the race at Le Mans on 17th May, so it is just about waiting for an official statement where it will be announced that also French GP is going to be postponed.
That means 2020 MotoE FIM Enel World Cup start has been delayed; the electric series was still able to make the first official pre-season test at Jerez just a couple of weeks ago. MotoE riders were expected to be again on track at Jerez the next Month for another pre-season session of tests, but the ongoing situation forced to delay them as well.
