With Catalan GP getting postponed. Now Dorna has issued the below statement on the ongoing Corona pandemic.

Dorna Statement

The coronavirus pandemic is ongoing and has already resulted in revisions to the 2020 calendar for the MotoGP™ World Championship, including the postponement or rescheduling of a number of events.

In light of the continued uncertainty, Dorna Sports would like to reaffirm that racing is our top priority in 2020.


At Dorna, we remain in continuous discussion with the FIM, IRTA, the MSMA, and Grand Prix promoters as we closely monitor the situation. Keeping channels of communication and support between each pillar of our sport as open as possible. 

The aim of every party involved is to begin racing again as soon as it is safe to do so.

Our number one focus has always been and will remain on trying to run the 2020 season with as many Grands Prix as possible, finishing within the 2020 calendar year.

 However, we will always act in line with health and safety advice from governments and relevant health authorities.

If the pandemic continues to put our lives and sport on hold for longer than any of us are able to anticipate and travel restrictions remain in place.

Only as a last resort would Dorna Sports ever consider discussing the cancellation of the 2020 season with the FIM, IRTA, and the MSMA.

Our number one focus for WorldSBK is likewise trying to run the 2020 season with as many Rounds as possible once it is safe to do so.

The priority of all parties involved is to race, safely, and bring our fans more of what they love: motorcycle racing.

Our Thoughts

We have already seen many lives during the last three months due to Corona. The pandemic started in January 2020 and is still in an aggressive mode in some parts of the world.

We feel there are many races that are canceled, and of this goes on till at least about few more months.

Dorna may have to cancel all the races related to MotoGP and WSBK for this year, at least. For MotoGP and WSBK fans, this may not look good, but this is going to be a last resort.
