Qatar Moto GP latest sports event to fall to coronavirus fears
The IRTA have communicated to participating teams that the inaugural race of the season is to be cancelled and the Thailand GP will be moved to September 2nd.
The ever-growing global coronavirus situation has been the pivotal motive in seeing the opening Moto GP race of the 2020 season in Qatar cancelled due to travel restrictions which will prevent many of the teams from Italy to travel to the Gulf nation.
The Chinese Formula 1 GP, Serie A football games and now the opening Moto GP race of the season have been hit as cases of casualties catching Covid-19 virus continues to extend globally.
Local Qatari authorities have enforced travel restrictions on all passengers arriving in Doha from Italy and other high risk countries with travellers being forced to spend 14 days in quarantine before being allowed entry to the Gulf nation.
With the bulk of Moto 2 and Moto 3 teams already being in Qatar, it appears at this point that races involving these categories will go ahead at the Losail International Circuit.
