The FIM, IRTA and Dorna Sports have announced the cancellation of the Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix for a second year. They made this announcement yesterday on 19th August.

Thus, the FIM, IRTA and Dorna Sports have confirmed that MotoGP will return to the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli as a replacement for the Malaysian GP.

“The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting entry restrictions for Malaysia oblige the cancellation of the event,” a joint statement from the sport’s ruling body the FIM and promoters Dorna confirmed.

Frenchman Fabio Quartararo of Yamaha leads the championship by 47 points from Francesco Bagnaia of Ducati, ahead of the British Grand Prix, the 12th round of the 2021 season, on Aug 29.

We hope to see Malaysia’s return in 2022.
