UPDATED 2020 Motorcycle Race Calendars (Corona Virus)
The first event on the major bike racing calendar kicked off at Phillip Island, Australia on 28th February 2020 with World Superbikes. However that was a lucky break for what has otherwise been a disastrous start to the 2020 race season, with calendars up in the air as a result of the Corona Virus outbreak - Even the iconic 2020 Isle of Man TT and North West 200 races have been cancelled with Olivers Mount currently being rescheduled...
Anyway here are the current updated 2020 motorcycle race calendars for MotoGP, WSBK and BSB as things stand - UPDATED 01/07/2020 - no doubt there will be more changes to come and we'll try to keep this accurate as things evolve.
Let's all try and stay safe, follow government advice and keep calm; fingers crossed we will see some decent racing finally this race season.
Updated MotoGP 2020 Race Calendar
The return of the Finnish GP at KymiRing Circuit (subject to FIM homologation) was meant to give us a 20-race calendar for 2020 - the longest in MotoGP history. The MotoGP calendar was meant to kick-off on Sunday 08th March (evening race) under the flood lights of the Losail International Circuit in the Qatari desert, but this was cancelled
As things stand there are 13-14 races scheduled - if you include the tentatively booked Thai GP on 4th October - the minimum number to qualify the season as an official world championship is 13 races!
Cancelled Rounds: Losail (Qatar), Silverstone (UK), Mugello (Italy), Phillip Island (Australia).
