It was officialy announced the cancellation of the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix.

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and resulting travel complications and logistical restrictions mean it has not been possible to confirm the viability of the event at this time, and it will therefore not feature on the 2021 calendar.

The 2021 Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prix has therefore been brought forward and will take place a week earlier than previously scheduled, from the 22nd to the 24th of October – the weekend immediately following the rescheduled Grand Prix of Thailand.

In addition, the FIM, IRTA and Dorna Sports are delighted to confirm the addition of the Algarve Grand Prix to the 2021 MotoGP World Championship calendar.

MotoGP will return to Portimao from the 5th to the 7th of November, the week preceding the Valencia Grand Prix, as the iconic Autodromo do Algarve welcomes MotoGP back for a second Grand Prix this season.
