The Thailand MotoGP, initially scheduled for 22 March but postponed because of the coronavirus, has been rescheduled for 4 October, the international motorcycling federation announced Thursday.

To accommodate the shift, the Aragon GP, which was to be held on 4 October, has been brought forward a week to 27 September.

This weekend's season-opening MotoGP in Qatar was cancelled because of the spread of the virus, although the Moto2 and Moto3 races will go ahead as planned as riders were already in the country for testing.
