Mugello has been cancelled from the 2020 MotoGP World Championship calendar as a result on the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

The Italian round has long been one of the most iconic in the sport, becoming a permanent fixture since the 1991 season.

“I would like to thank all of our fans who have supported and encouraged us during these months, and invite them back to Mugello in 2021 for what will be, as always, one of the most iconic events of the season.”

“It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of Mugello,” said Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO of Dorna Sports. “Sadly, we were not able to find a solution to the logistical and operational issues resulting from the pandemic and rearranged calendar to enable us to visit the venue this season.

“It is a great loss as Mugello is one of the most beautiful circuits in the world and one we are very proud to call the home of the Italian Grand Prix. On behalf of Dorna, I would like to thank the fans for the understanding and patience they have shown as we wait for the situation to improve.”

The MotoGP World Championship will return to Mugello for the Italian Grand Prix from next season. We have already seen the German, Dutch, Finnish, British, Australian and Japanese rounds cancelled.
