The new date set for the beginning of 2020 MotoGP Championship is now 31th May as long as also French GP is now officially postponed due to ongoing Coronavirus emergency. The season should now start with Italian GP at Mugello Circuit but is really unlikely to have the chance to see riders back in action for that date.
Probably also Italian GP will be rescheduled with Mugello organizers who will be forced to delay the event finding another date. Not an easy task for everyone as the Calendar does not offer too much with 5 races already postponed. Talking about French GP, event promoter Claude Michy talked about the possibility to have the race on June 12-14 as a ‘fallback’.
The most probable scenario is a shortened 2020 Calendar missing some races. Having 2020 MotoGP season to start in June could be a real possibility, meaning that maybe there is a little chance to see action in Italy at the end of May as well, but at the moment it is only an hypothesis as long as the ongoing coronavirus emergency situation change day by day.
“As the situation remains in a state of constant evolution, new dates for the French GP and Spanish GP cannot be confirmed until it becomes clearer when exactly it will be possible to hold the events. A revised calendar will be published as soon as available”, read a MotoGP statement, who firstly announced: “FIM, IRTA and Dorna Sports regret to announce the postponement of the SHARK Helmets Grand Prix de France, which was set to be held at the Bugatti Circuit in Le Mans from the 15th to the 17th of May. The ongoing coronavirus outbreak has obliged the event to be rescheduled”
