Portuguese Grand Prix: new track, new schedule

Find all the key information to follow the final GP of 2020: the races will be at a different time from the usual CET time

The MotoGP ™ World Championship will see lights out for the very first time at the Autodromo Internacional del Algarve this weekend at the MEO de Portugal Grand Prix that will bring the curtain down on a pulsating 2020 season.

Despite Joan Mir (Team Suzuki Ecstar) claiming the 2020 MotoGP™ World Championship in Valencia, there is still plenty at stake with two more titles on the line with the new Moto2™ and Moto3™ Champions to be crowned in Portimao.

Festivities kick-off on Thursday, November 19th, with the premier class press conference at 17:00 local time (GMT + 0). Champion Mir will be present together with the winner of the last race in Cheste, Franco Morbidelli (Petronas Yamaha SRT), as well as 4 riders who will see change of scenery next year: Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team), Pol Espargaro (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing), Jack Miller (Pramac Racing) and Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda Castrol).
