With just one week left before 2020 MotoGP Championship start, the circus loses one more Grand Prix as Austin decided to cancel his event for 2021 announcing the new one for April 2021. Americas GP was one of the races to be defined together with Argentina, Thailandia and Malaysia, which are now the only extra European track left.
The circuit announced it yesterday on its social media accounts: “The ‘Horsepower Rodeo’ will return next year for an even bigger and better MotoGP Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas on April 16-18, 2021! This year’s event on November 13-15, 2020 has been canceled. Ticket holders will receive an email with further information”
2020 provisional Calendar sees indeed only European races at the moment as travelling over Europe is really complicated nowadays. Carmelo Ezpeleta said that a decision will be made until the end of July for the Grands Prix over Europe but in some countries the COVID-19 crisis did not slow too much.
Dorna left space in November and December for that races, but we are still waiting to know if Termas, Buriram and Sepang could be part of 2020 MotoGP calendar bringing to 16 the number of the races which are now 13.
