MotoGP Argentina Rescheduled Due to the Coronavirus Outbreak. France GP in Doubt

The Coronavirus concerns may cause a complete reschedule for the 2020 MotoGP calendar

The Grand Prix of Argentina was rescheduled for November. Here's the latest press release. 

"The FIM, IRTA and Dorna Sports regret to announce the postponement of the Gran Premio Motul de la Republica Argentina, which was set to take place from the 17th to the 19th of April. Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, the event has been rescheduled for later in the season and will now take place from the 20th to the 22nd of November.

The Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana will therefore now be held from the 27th to the 29th of November.

The Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas retains its new date from the 13th to the 15th of November, a week before the rescheduled Gran Premio Motul de la Republica Argentina.

Following these schedule changes, the 2020 MotoGP™ class season is now set to begin with the Gran Premio Red Bull de España at the Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto from the 1st to the 3rd of May 2020.

Dates for the Moto2™ and Moto3™ test in Valencia and the MotoGP™ test in Jerez at the end of the year will be decided once the season is underway."

Furthermore, the Le Mans 24 Endurance World Championship race was postponed and rescheduled for September which adds more concerns regarding the France GP. Initially scheduled on May 17th, the round 4 of the MotoGP calendar could be postponed or cancelled as well.

The racing season in MotoGP has been badly affected by the Coronavirus outbreak with the premier class race cancelled at the Qatar GP, Thailand GP and Grand Prix of the Americas postponed. 

We could see a complete reshuffle of the 2020 MotoGP calendar or Dorna and the FIM could take the decision to host MotoGP races behind closed doors without spectators. This method will be used for the Bahrain F1 Grand Prix.
