The news broke already on Wednesday, that the Austin round of MotoGP had been canceled. At the time, there was no press release from Dorna and the FIM making it official. That press release was issued today, and appears below:
Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas cancelled
Friday, 10 July 2020
The FIM, IRTA and Dorna Sports regret to announce the cancellation of the 2020 Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas. Previously postponed, the ongoing coronavirus outbreak and resulting complications now sadly oblige the cancellation of the event to be confirmed.
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 and plans have started in order to welcome the fans back to the iconic venue.
The Circuit of the Americas is a stunning modern classic just outside of Austin, TX, and first welcomed 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.
