MotoGP: Kazakhstan GP postponed due to flooding in Asia

Everything seemed to be done and dusted, but instead here comes the twist in the ending. The Kazakhstan GP, scheduled for mid-June, has in fact been postponed to a date to be determined. This is what is stated in the note issued this morning by Dorna, the cause of which is due to the floods that recently hit Central Asia.

Below is the statement explaining the choice.

"The FIM, IRTA and Dorna Sports announce that the Grand Prix of Kazakhstan has been postponed until later in 2024. Unprecedented weather conditions have led to flooding across Central Asia, causing a national emergency in Kazakhstan and displacing much of the population. It would not be responsible for MotoGP to add any additional burden on the authorities or services as they work to help the tens of thousands of people affected across the country. Sokol International Racetrack will therefore not host MotoGP on the dates previously announced, and any further updates will be published once confirmed.  As our utmost priority, MotoGP™ sends our condolences and support to the people of Kazakhstan and all those affected by the flooding in Central Asia. We hope the nation, region and communities affected can recover as soon as possible."

So we will keep an eye on any developments in the situation, remembering that the Argentine GP has already been cancelled this season.
