Tracks in Reserve
Portugal - Algarve International Circuits.
Indonesia - Mandalika International Street Circuit.
Russia - Igora Driver Circuit/

Notes
The schedule is provisional, with 3 race tracks on reserve.
Portuguese GP venue Algarve is one, while the under-construction Mandalika International Street Circuit in Indonesia is another, and Igora Drive in Russia is the third.
Should the Czech GP not happen, one of these three circuits will then be used instead - though the Indonesian venue still needs to be homologated by the FIM.
It appears Igora Drive does have approval to host MotoGP, with Ezpeleta confirming FIM safety officer Franco Uncini has inspected the venue.

Bugger that no Burriram. I guess that wont be the last change. Singha wouldnt be happy if they are major sponsors but no home race.

It's all a misunderstanding.......the 2021 Thailand MotoGP is back on again????


Feb 3, 2021, 9:08 PM
Reports the 2021 MotoGP Thailand Grand Prix has been shelved by the government were a “misunderstanding”, according to a spokesperson from the Buriram circuit.

On Tuesday reports surfaced in the Bangkok Press that the local Thai government had taken the decision to postpone the beginning of its new MotoGP contract with Dorna Sports to 2022 owing to continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.

A brief statement from the circuit clarified the situation, which read: “There was a misunderstanding. Actually, the government was announcing the postponement of 2020's race and to host in 2021 instead.

“We still carry on and look forward to hosting the Thai GP at our circuit this coming October.”
