2021 MotoGP Calendar update: July 23, 2021

The Thai MotoGP Grand Prix, scheduled from 15 to 17 October 2021 at the Buriram Circuit, has been canceled from the 2021 MotoGP Calendar. It is yet another blow that the COVID-19 pandemic has struck on the two-wheel world championship in the last two years. Too many restrictions, and too stringent the regulations of the Asian country, to ensure that the Grand Prix can be carried out correctly.

The Calendar therefore returns to 18 rounds, a number that was reached thanks to the Losail and Red Bull Ring double-headers. However, it may not be the last change to the current season, as now the US and Malaysian races might be in trouble.

Both the Austin and Sepang Grand Prix are now seeing problems related to both the virus and the money factor. In fact, several commentators reflect on the economic burden for teams, organizers and partners of racing in such distant places without actually being able to tie everything together. Austin and Sepang are 21 days apart from each other: too many to think the series can be on the road without intermediate stages.

Once again, the coronavirus and the data for the next few days will provide the thermometer of the situation. With the pandemic resuming its gallop after the summer openings, even sport is starting to fear again.

2021 MotoGP Calendar update: May 25, 2021

After a difficult 2020 for everyone, the MotoGP paddock is also preparing to return to the track and, barring last-minute changes, is preparing to do so on all 19 tracks originally planned. Confirmed the Portuguese stage in Portimao, the appointments in the USA and Argentina, still struggling with a high number of infections, remain on stand – by and awaiting confirmation. The new Finnish track of KymiRing has been added to anticipate the summer break and then the world championship should also return to Asia, but the conditional is a must given the historical moment. Australia and Thailand are currently confirmed but, as for the other extra-European stages, updates are awaited. What is certain is that we start again, finally.
