Dorna Sports SL (headed by Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO) that holds the exclusive commercial and television rights of the FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix (MotoGP™) and Mobility Corporation that hosts and operates this championship in Japan have officially decided to cancel 2020 FIM MotoGP™ World Championship Grand Prix of Japan that has been scheduled to take place from Friday, October 16th to Sunday, October 18th, 2020 at Twin Ring Motegi (in Motegi-machi, Tochigi).
This decision was reached after carefully considering the global impact of COVID-19 and the ongoing efforts made worldwide to prevent its further spread. In particular, one major concern was the foreseeable high safety risk of all the stakeholders of this championship who will be required to travel long distance to Japan from various parts of the world. To mitigate this risk and prioritize on the continuity of this championship, both enterprises agreed that the best approach to take in the given difficult situation would be to rearrange this year's tour schedule in the direction of holding all the remaining races in the host countries in Europe that are located closer to each other.
To the motor sports fans, racing teams, sponsors and all other stakeholders involved in the preparation of Grand Prix of Japan who were looking forward to getting together in Twin Ring Motegi this October, your understanding of this anguished decision and continued support of MotoGP™ will be greatly appreciated.
