All three MotoGP races at Assen, Sachsenring and KymiRing will not take place in 2020, it has been confirmed.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, 11 rounds of the 2020 MotoGP season have already postponed, though races in Argentina, Austin and Thailand have since been rescheduled.

The Dutch, German and Finnish GP's were supposed to take place just before the summer break in late June and early July.

But in an official statement released today, Dorna announced that all of these three races will be cancelled.

"It is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of these three important Grands Prix on the MotoGP calendar," CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta said.

"The German GP is raced on a truly unique track with an incredible history, and the Kymiring is an exciting new venue set to welcome Grand Prix motorcycle racing back to Finland for the first time since 1982.

"And the iconic TT Circuit Assen had the unique honour of being the only venue to have held a round of the motorcycle racing Grand Prix World Championship every year, uninterrupted, since the Championship began in 1949.

"On behalf of Dorna, I would like to thank all the fans for their understanding and patience as we wait for the situation to improve.

"We very much look forward to returning to the Sachsenring and the TT Circuit Assen in 2021, and eagerly await the Grand Prix debut of the new KymiRing next season."

No further news regarding the start of the 2020 MotoGP season, though in an earlier statement, Dorna officials said there are four plans to get the season started around mid-August.
