GRAND PRIX OF ARGENTINA CANCELED: WHAT’S NEXT TO FALL TO THE CORONAVIRUS (UPDATED)

Argentina MXGP Clement Desalle

The Grand Prix of Argentina has been canceled due to the coronavirus. The Argentinian GP was scheduled for March 22—until the Argentinian Minister of Health postponed all international events in the country for the foreseeable future.

Since Argentina was a successful fly-away race, MXGP desperately wants it to be held and has set a tentative date of November 22, 2020 for it’s replacement race. This would extend the 2020 MXGP Championship by two months. The current final 2020 GP is in Italy on Sept. 20 (with the Motocross des Nations on September 27). If the Grand Prix of Argentina is really going to be held on November 22, it might as well be part of the 2021 World Motocross Championships for all the relevance it will have to the 2020 GP series.
