For the second consecutive year, Argentina could stay with the desire to be the scene of a date of Motorcycle World Championship. At least that is clear from the revised calendar that was released today Dorna Sports, organizer of the tournament; and that it is approved by the International Motorcycle Federation (FIM) and the World Cup Teams Association (IRTA).
The main novelty of the new calendar is the cancellation of the Japanese Grand Prix as a consequence of the restrictions in that country due to the pandemic of coronavirus.
All these modifications have not benefited the Argentine GP, which was originally going to be held in sometime in the last quarter of 2021. The only chance could be that one of the year-end dates is canceled well in advance and forces another reorganization of the race schedule.
The Argentine GP is set on the Termas de Río Hondo International Circuit, that last February suffered a big fire. Those in charge of the stage have worked in this time to recover it and repeatedly stated that it would be fit for an eventual MotoGP visit at the end of the year.
