Japanese GP called off

The Japanese Grand Prix has been canceled due to travel complications and logistical restrictions amid the COVID-19 pandemic, with the Grand Prix of the Americas to be held in Austin, Texas, from October 1-3 instead, MotoGP organizers said yesterday. The Grand Prix of the Americas was canceled last year due to the pandemic while this year’s race as well as the Argentina GP was postponed until the final quarter of 2021. As a result, the Grand Prix of Thailand will now take place on October 15-17, a week after its original date. The Japanese GP was set to be held in the first week of October. July’s Finnish GP was also canceled due to travel restrictions related to the pandemic, forcing organizers to schedule a doubleheader in Austria in August instead.
