French Grand Prix organisers hoping for October race

Shark Helmets French Grand Prix organisers are hopeful that a 2020 Le Mans race can be added to the calendar

The Shark Helmets Grand Prix de France race organisers are hoping the Le Mans race can be added to the updated 2020 calendar, which Dorna, the FIM and IRTA are currently working on.

The Covid-19 outbreak led to the French GP, which was scheduled for the 15th-17th May, getting postponed on the 2nd of April, with no new date for the Le Mans event being announced. However, as a glimmer of light appears at the end of the tunnel – with Dorna Sports CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta announcing the aim is to start the season in July at the Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto – a French MotoGP™ round could be more likely, as racing in Europe looks to be an ever-growing possibility between July and November.

“As the organiser of the French round of the MotoGP™ World Championship, we’re working continuously to try to organise the 2020 Shark Helmets French Grand Prix in the first two weeks of October,” said the organisers of the French GP. “The possibility is yet to be confirmed but in the coming weeks we hope for positive developments in the health situation, despite the uncertainty that hangs over highly-populated events with regards to respecting the regulations put in place by the government.”
