It has been announced that Misano will be the first circuit in 2020 that will allow spectators, with up to 10,000 spectators to be given access to the track per day each weekend for their double header.
The Misano World Circuit will host the San Marino and Emilia Romagna GP’s on consecutive weekends on the 13th and 20th of September, and the region have announced they will accommodate people in the stands, but you will not be able to roam freely.
The circuit organisers have released a statement–
“It is a decision that excites us – the promoters from the territory say in unison – because under specific conditions it also represents a green light for the restart of world sport finally in front of the fans.
“In a month we will be ready to safely welcome 10,000 guests who can enter the Marco Simoncelli Circuit every day, thus guaranteeing the possibility that 60,000 people can see the show live over the two weekends. Sincere thanks to the Emilia-Romagna Region and to President Bonaccini for having listened to and carefully evaluated our project. Of course, it’s not 160,000 in just one weekend last year, but today we objectively have an opportunity that until a few weeks ago seemed impossible or very complicated to guarantee.”
“In any case, it will be a support for the tourism industry, which can add an event that, it should not be forgotten, with the MotoGP ‘caravan’ guarantees at least another 3,000 people involved in the organisation and assistance to the teams and who will stay in Riviera. Added to this is the powerful media message that will reach the whole world.”
There are still hurdles with the pandemic still active, that you have to be in a country that will allow travel to Italy to go watch, but this is a positive step forward to normality.
