Another week, another motorcycle race postponed, with no date set for rescheduling. This week it is the turn of the Mugello and Barcelona rounds of MotoGP, scheduled to take place on May 31st and June 7th respectively.
Today, the FIM, IRTA, and Dorna announced that the Italian and Catalunya rounds of MotoGP have been postponed, and no new date has been set for them to take place.
With Mugello and Barcelona postponed, the first race on the calendar is now the German round at the Sachsenring, due to be held on June 21st.
The postponement of Barcelona also means the loss of the second post-race test for the MotoGP class, after the test at Jerez was also lost. Whether those tests will be replaced is unknown at this time.
This is just one more in a rolling series of postponements, as Dorna and the FIM wait for the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak to run its course and settle into more predictable waters.
That is why the races have not been rescheduled on new dates. Those dates are just as likely to change as things stand at the current moment.
