Satu Seri MotoGP Di Asia Kembali Dibatalkan, Kali Ini Motul GP of Japan

THEMANDALIKAGP – FIM, IRTA dan Dorna Sports kembali membatalkan satu seri MotoGP di Asia yakni Motul Grand Prix of Japan yang seharusnya dilakukan pada 16 hingga 18 Oktober 2020 di Twin Ring Motegi, Jepang. Jepang dikenal sebagai tuan rumah dari tiga tim pabrikan besar yakni Honda, Yamaha dan Suzuki yang memberikan dampak yang besar bagi keberlangsungan event MotoGP. Ini adalah kali pertama balapan di sirkuit Motegi dibatalkan sejak pertama kali dibuka pada tahun 1986.

Kaoru Tanaka, President, Mobilityland Corporation dilansir dari motogp.com mengatakan bahwa semua sudah dipersiapkan untuk mengadakan event MotoGP musim ini. Namun kondisi Jepang dan Eropa masih belum bisa diprediksi secara tepat dan masih adanya larangan untuk berpergian membuat Jepang membatalkan event MotoGP dimusim ini.

Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO Dorna Sports menambahkan bahwa keputusan ini diambil demi keselamatan sema belah pihak. Tim MotoGP pun sudah bekerja keras agar tidak membatalkan beberapa seri. Namun untuk kasus ini FIM dan Dorna bersama dengan IRTA dan MSMA memutuskan bahwa hingga pertengahan November, MotoGP akan diselenggarakan di Eropa dan tidak akan cukup waktunya untuk mengadakan event di sirkuit Motegi setelah pertengahan November.

“It is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of the Motul Grand Prix of Japan at the very unique Motegi circuit, meaning we will not have a Japanese Grand Prix on the calendar for the first time since 1986. The MotoGP™ family is working very hard to be able to re-start the racing season and hold as many events as possible, and in the safest way possible. For this reason, the FIM and Dorna, in consultation with IRTA and MSMA, have decided that, until mid-November, MotoGP™ will remain in Europe to do as many European MotoGP™ events as we are able to. Therefore, overseas events, if at all possible, should be scheduled after mid-November – which would be too late in the year for the Motul Grand Prix of Japan to be held. For this reason it has been decided, in consultation with Mobilityland, that the Motul Grand Prix of Japan cannot be held in 2020. I very much thank Mobilityland for the support given to MotoGP™.  On behalf of Dorna, I would also 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 Motegi next year.”
