After the first Race at the Losail Circuit, Qatar was confirmed canceled, the MotoGP then overhauled the existing schedule. The second series race in Buriram, Thailand has also been confirmed to be delayed, but a new schedule has been released.
For information, the first MotoGP series this season should have been held since March 6 at the Losail Circuit, Qatar. However, in the end the race was canceled following the Qatar Government’s recent decision.
The Qatari Government took part in taking precautions by banning its citizens from going to affected countries, and forbidding tourist visits from these countries.
Considering that many riders came from affected countries like Italy, the result was that MotoGP was canceled.
Not only Qatar, the Second Series should have been held in Buriram, Thailand but postponed. Because, Thailand is also one of the countries that have been contaminated with the COVID-19 virus.
