    The GP bikes will not run the opening round of the 2020 Season, however, Moto2 and Moto3 will run a revised race schedule.

    Due to Qatar requiring a 14 day quarantine for persons coming into the country from Italy, which isn't possible - and still hold the race on schedule.

    Little disappointed as I was really looking forward to seeing the start of the season. The two Marquez's, Miller on a factory spec Duck, Binder and Lecuona in the Premiere class, and to top that off the Petronas Yamaha team having factory bikes too. Was really pumped for the start of the season. :irked:
