The race was scheduled to take place on 11 July at the new KymiRing circuit which should have hosted its first MotoGP race last year.
Le Mans: The Finnish Grand Prix, which was due to take place in July, has been cut from this year’s MotoGP calendar and replaced by the Styrian GP in August, the International Motorcycling Federation (FIM) announced on Friday.
“The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, as well as resulting travel complications to Finland, have obliged the cancellation of the event,” said the FIM in a statement.
The race was scheduled to take place on 11 July at the new KymiRing circuit which should have hosted its first MotoGP race last year. That too was cancelled due to the pandemic.
The Grand Prix of Styria has been added to the calendar to make an Austrian double-header in August.
The event will take place at the Red Bull Ring on 8 August, the weekend before the Austrian Grand Prix.
