MotoGP: Sepang circuit available to host 2 Grand Prixs in 2020


Nobody knows what will happen to the MotoGP calendar this year due to the worldwide Coronavirsus epidemic. The race in Thailand has been postponed for now, while the April 5th Austin round has been confirmed, even if the city in Texas declared a local state of disaster. Dorna's intention is to race all 19 remaining Grand Prix races, but they'll probably need to make some changes in the race and use a bit of their imagination.

Razlan Razali, the CEO of the Sepang Circuit, launched a poll on his Facebook profile for MotoGP fans: “Do you agree to having two MotoGP races in Malaysia?" was the question.

Of course, doubling the number of GPs on a "safe" track could solve many problems if there are cancellations in the calendar. Furthermore, Sepang has the advantage of a warm climate in all seasons, so it could be a great wild card if the situation worsens.

It's just an idea for now, but it could prove to be a lifesaver for the MotoGP.
