MotoGP class in Qatar is cancelled for Corona Virus

The MotoGP class will not take part in next weekend’s season-opening Qatar Grand Prix – but Moto2, Moto3 goes ahead as planned

Escalating travel restrictions in response to the coronavirus outbreak have resulted in the MotoGP class cancelling its planned season-opening round in Qatar next weekend.

However, the Moto2 and Moto3 classes will still go ahead as planned since all riders and teams are already in Qatar, having concluded their final pre-season test at the same Losail circuit earlier today Sunday.

MotoGP had previously arranged an exemption from some of Qatar’s increasing entry restrictions for passengers from Italy and Japan.

However, Qatar, which announced its first recorded case of coronavirus yesterday, is now imposing a blanket two-week quarantine on any passengers that have recently visited Italy.
