Thailand Grand Prix to go ahead despite Coronavirus concerns

Thailand Grand Prix to go ahead despite Coronavirus concerns
February 21, 2020

The Sports Authority of Thailand has confirmed that the OR Thailand Grand Prix set for mid-March 2020, can safely take place.

With the outbreak of Coronavirus affecting a number of locations and events worldwide, the decision required official consideration as the situation in Thailand was monitored.

After consulting with the Ministry of Public Health's Department of Disease Control, the Sports Authority of Thailand has officially communicated, on behalf of the Royal Thai government, that there is no major risk, with the country having infected patients under care and strict preventive measures in place - resulting in the highest rate of fully recovered patients worldwide.

The Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM), International Road-Racing Teams Association (IRTA) and Dorna Sports therefore confirm that MotoGP™ will return at Buriram from the 20th to 22nd March for another spectacular Thai GP.

Dorna Sports is the company that manages all commercial aspects of the Grand Prix and organises each event, with responsibilities ranging from marketing, media services, security, time-keeping and sponsorship co-ordination to TV production and promotion.
