Japanese MotoGP cancelled after volcano disruption

The Japanese MotoGP race, scheduled to take place at the Twin Ring Motegi next weekend (April 25), has been postponed until early October because of on-going European travel chaos caused by an Icelandic volcano, MCN can reveal.

It a shame that Japan has been cancelled but least Dorna have used there drains and scheduled it for later in the year.  3 races in 3 weekend again that fine with me but my sleep patten is going to be all over the place.

Rocking October :)

October will be an absolute cooker regarding bike racing! Last round of WSBK + MotoGP Round 14 on 3rd October; then MotoGP Round 15 on 10th October; then MotoGP Round 16 on 17th October; and then MotoGP Round 17 on 31st October! My wife is pissed cause she won't see me much on ANY Sunday in October and I'll still fit in my breakFAST run's with the Blade! Life is great :)

Just proves that it doesn't currently work...

The current arrangement of tracks/races in my opinion doesn't work because they have to fly all the kit everywhere. Doesn't this cost more too? Would it not be better to do the rounds as close together, distance wise, as possible? They could then drive all the Europe rounds and keep the American rounds together too. Just a thought that seems so painfully obvious it hurts!!!! Some smart arse will now tell me exactly why they do them in the order they do I'm sure - ;)

I can only assume it's weather reasons but I do agree it really is stupid not to goto the nearest track after the race.

i've always thought that some of the rounds could be swapped around so that travel could be reduced for the long haul races.  i'm sure the yanks would like the idea of a MotoGP double header in the summer .... though i've never understood why they go to Indy during the hurricane season !

Any other GP would've been cancelled

and replaced with another Spanish round. I guess Japanese manufacturer muscle has enabled them to run a postponed round.

anyone for hungary?? Kawasakibiker has a very good point regarding all the travel-does make sense to have both USA tracks within weeks/days of each other.
