MotoGP: 3 stages in Thailand, Malaysia and Argentina waiting for “verdict”
With the goal of organizing at least 13 races in the 2020 season and in case the worst case cannot leave Europe, MotoGP organizers have set up a new schedule for this year, including up to 5 racetrack. will organize 2 consecutive races in 2 weeks.
Jerez is the opening stage for the season with two stages respectively on July 19 and 26, then the Red Bull Ring (Austria), Misano (San Marino), Aragon and Valencia (Spain) respectively. The race track closes this season.
Between these 5 races are 3 other locations that have confirmed 1 race this year, namely Brno (Czech Republic), Catalunya (Spain) and Le Mans (France).
Accordingly, after 2 consecutive weeks at Jerez, the racing teams will have to prepare to face 3 tripleheaders (3 stages in 3 consecutive weeks) in August and October, but they will have a 2-week break between each of these tripleheaders. So out of the 13 confirmed races, up to 7 races are held in the “gaur country”, which is referred to as the “home town” of the tournament.
Besides, in addition to 9 officially canceled routes, the remaining 3 sections in Thailand, Malaysia and Argentina are still waiting for the final “ruling” in the near future. However, looking at the current schedule, it will not be easy to rearrange the order of the races if the three events above can be “green-lighted” to organize.
World SBK: There are 9 races in total
The WSBK 2020 completed an opening race in Phillip Island, Australia in early March before being postponed indefinitely. The tournament will be back in early August at Jerez (so this race will have 3 consecutive weeks of racing), along with 3 other races on Spanish soil.
Two of these will take place in Aragon in late August, early September and then Catalunya on September 19-20.
Algarve (Portugal), the race is being considered to organize an F1 race this year, with Magny-Cours (France) and Misano (Italy) will be the remaining names to be held in 2020.
Thus the season will have a total of 9 races, expected to end on November 7 to 8 in Misano so the racing schedule is not so dense as MotoGP. However, except Imola (Italy) and Oschersleben (Germany) that have been officially canceled, there are three other names: Donington Park (England), Assen (Netherlands) and Losail (Qatar) are waiting and hoping to be ranked. calendar.
