UPDATED 2020 Motorcycle Race Calendars (Corona Virus)

By

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 race has been cancelled with the North West 200 and Olivers Mount currently postponed...

Anyway here are the current updated 2020 motorcycle race calendars for MotoGP, WSBK and BSB as things stand at 21/03/2020 - 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 of this race season.


Updated MotoGP 2020 Race Calendar

MotoGP 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, bringing the current race calendar back to a 19 race season - 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 Thailand GP was also meant to be closer to the beginning of the season, rather than the usual late season round in October - this is currently waiting to be rescheduled (hopefully). At the time of writing the Brno round was not 100% confirmed, with contracts still to be concluded and the future of this GP round in question.
