    Thanks Legrand.

    I didn’t get to watch much from Phillip Island so far this weekend but by the sounds of things it looks like a great start to the season for WSB.

    Brilliant first race...that is all...:)

    Michael Dunlop on a PBM Ducati this season - should be interesting. Ducati have not been on the roads with a competitive rider for ages.

    Qatar MotoGP cancelled.

    Official confirmation within next two hours.

    Moto2 & 3 go ahead.

    It's to be confirmed but it is believed to be because Ducati and Aprilla cannot travel.

    Hope none of the road races fall victim to it, they are already iffy enough financially.

    Aye, and Glenn Irwin before him.

    It will be interesting to see how they fare at the UGP, if it goes ahead.

    Thailand Moto gp (all classes) has been deferred with the hope of running the race later in the year.

    Moto gp season now scheduled to start on April 5th at COTA

    I forgotten about that, but I'm more interested in the TT than NW to be fair.

    I'd like to MD up there with Hickman this year but it's a big ask

    Is Glenn Irwin still going ahead with the TT, will be a few years learning curve

    Jorge wild carding in Barcelona

    Italian putting a quarantine on Lambardy region. It could put Austin in massive doubt now.

    Good opening race but those stands...

    I have Le Mans booked but with each day it looks less and less likely to happen. Unfortunate, as it's almost certainly my last chance to see Rossi race again :(

    Super Moto2, great start to the season. Have Austria booked - hopeful that will be good to go!

    France bans gathering of over 1000. Other countries will follow suit. It's going to be a disastrous year for sport.

    Great to see Paul Jordan has got a ride with RAF reserves for the international road races. A Paton for twins as well. A bit of BSB action before the roads will do him no harm.

    As expected COTA has been deferred to November with the Moto GP season now officially starting in Argentina.

    Portuguese circuits Estoril and Portimao have also been put on standby for hosting races this season.

    I wouldn't be too shocked if it was Jerez before we see the season starting.

    I think any racing in Europe this year will be behind closed doors. With such a large Italian contingent in MotoGP it may be scrapped altogether.

    Jerez is now the season opener - Argentina is deferred to November on the 22nd, Valencia moves to the 29th November.

    Spain is now the 2nd highest in Europe for infections. Not a chance there will be racing there is side of September.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,767 ✭✭✭Scotty #


    Le Mans off til 6th September > https://www.lemans.org/en/news/the-24-heures-motos-postponed-to-5-and-6-september-2020/53525
