It is now only four days before MotoGP 2020 season is back on track at Circuito de Jerez in Spain on 19 July. The season had been hanging in the balance after the first race in Qatar in March due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Even though as the season gets going again, the Grand Prix of the Americas now stands cancelled due to the prevailing conditions owing to the pandemic. The FIM, IRTA and Dorna Sports recently announced the cancellation of the 2020 Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas which had been previously postponed.

However, the promoters of the event and Dorna have already begun working on possible dates to propose to the FIM for the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas in April 2021.

Circuit of the Americas is a stunning modern classic track just outside of Austin, TX, having first hosted MotoGP in 2013. Splashed with colour across the whole venue, and with one of the most awe-inspiring ascents into a tight Turn 1, the facility has turned heads since it joined the calendar and the FIM, IRTA and Dorna Sports are very much looking forward to returning to the track next season, the statement reads.

A total of 17 rounds will be held between July and December with the first taking place in Spain on 19 July and the Gran Premio Red Bull de Andalucía on 26 July.
