LUSAIL, Qatar – The FIM and Dorna WSBK Organization have announced the decision to postpone the Lauretana Water Qatar round of the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship.
As the global coronavirus outbreak continues, travel restrictions to Qatar have been enforced, primarily affecting passengers from Italy, amongst others. People arriving directly from Italy or who have been in Italy in the past two weeks will be taken directly to quarantine for a minimum of 14 days.
Italian participation in World Superbike – both on track and off – is vital, thus officials have made the decision to postpone the Qatar round of the championship. Officials are hoping to reschedule the event for later in the year, but no date has been set as of yet.
