After the Qatar MotoGP event was cancelled, the American MotoGP also had to change its schedule like the Thai MotoGP.
This is due to the steps of the government of Austin, Texas, the United States who take strict steps to limit the transmission of Coronavirus in the area.
Reported from GPOne.com, the Circuit of The Americas (COTA) reportedly can only be used next summer, even though in summer the weather is not possible to hold a race.
There’s some news that Dorna Sports was trying to hold the event on the same date, only with another circuit. You can read the news at this link:
However, this circuit has not been homologized since it was last used by MotoGP event.
“But fortunately, there are no big problems on this circuit. It can be agreed without major problems, also because there is a critical situation, where there are things that cannot be avoided anymore,” said Franco Uncini, MotoGP safety director.
Certainty from Dorna, the American MotoGP event scheduled for April 5, 2020, will be postponed to November (11/15).
So, the new MotoGP race in 2020 will begin at the Spanish GP, Jerez circuit, Spain May 3, 2020.
