Malaysian MotoGP nixed

MotoGP yesterday announced the cancellation of the Malaysian Grand Prix for the second year in a row, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and its replacement by another race at Italy’s Misano circuit on October 24. Misano’s Marco Simoncelli Circuit, a home track for Italy’s soon-to-retire MotoGP great Valentino Rossi, is already scheduled to host the San Marino and Rimini Riviera GP on September 19. “The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting entry restrictions for Malaysia oblige the cancellation of the event,” MotoGP said in a statement. The name of the second race at Misano has yet to be announced. The circuit also hosted two rounds last year, with the second designated the Emilia Romagna GP. The Japanese, Australian and Thai rounds of the championship have already been canceled as well as the Finnish GP, scheduled for last month.
