We still miss the official statement of MotoGP but it is sure that Dutch GP at Assen and the new Finland GP at Kymiring are postponed delaying the start of 2020 MotoGP Season once again. The announce should arrive in the next few days, including also German GP at Sachsenring as long as German banned public gatherings due to ongoing Coronavirus emergency until 31 August.
The 90th running of the Dutch TT at Assen was scheduled on 28th June and after Sachsenring’s postponement seemed to be the first race of the season. It looked from early stages that it would have been really hard to have a race in that period and the news came from Dutch government removed any doubt: stop at every major sport events until September. That means also a delay on MotoE calendar which was about to race at Assen, over Moto2 and Moto3.
That means no chances to see a race at Assen until Autumn or even 2021, as long as Jos Vaessen, former circuit President, told that he will not consider to have a closed doors race but it would be better to miss the Grand Prix.
Similar destiny for Finland GP at Kymiring, who was scheduled on July. Finland’s Prime minister announced the ban to every events with over 500 people until 31th July and that does mean we could not have any MotoGP race for that day, neither with closed doors.
Dorna is planning to make closed doors Grand Prix and invited every team to make a list of indispensable members to have less people possible. Anyway, the minimum number of people to have a proper Grand Prix is set to circa 1000 and this makes pretty much impossible to have a race in Finland for July.
