Following continued uncertainty following the COVID-19 outbreak, the Sepang tests have been cancelled.
As COVID-19 continues to affect (ruin) our lives, the decision has been made to cancel the Shakedown and Official Sepang Test which was due to take place in February at Sepang and would have been the first chance for the MotoGP rookies to learn their new 2021 motorbikes ahead of the season which is currently supposed to begin in Qatar in March.
An official statement reads:
The FIM, IRTA and Dorna Sports regret to announce the cancellation of both the Shakedown Test and the Official Sepang Test.
The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting lockdowns and complications have obliged the cancellation of both events, which were set to take place at Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia in February.
The Qatar Test, currently set to take place at Losail International Circuit from the 10th to the 12th of March, continues to be confirmed and any further updates or changes will be provided as soon as available.
