MotoGP 2020 season will start on 19 July in Spain

The 2020 MotoGP season will start on 19 July in Spain following the Coronavirus (Covid-19) lockdown, with back-to-back races to be held at the Circuito de Jerez-Ángel Nieto, organisers announced on Thursday.

The Red Bull Grand Prix of Spain will be held on 19 July in Jerez, and the Red Bull Grand Prix of Andalusia on 26 July.

There will be a minimum of 13 races in the season, all in Europe between July and November, with ‘possibly four more’ outside the continent later in the year.

Whether or not fans can attend races will depend on each host country’s Coronavirus restrictions.

Spain will host seven races in total, with the Catalunya Grand Prix to go ahead in Barcelona on 27 September, while double-headers are also booked in at Aragon and in Valencia for October and November respectively.
