2020 Russian and German FIM Speedway Grand Prix cancelled

Posted:

The Russian FIM Speedway Grand Prix and 2020 Aztorin German FIM Speedway Grand Prix have been cancelled due to ongoing global health concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.

The events were scheduled to take place at Anatoly Stepanov Stadium on August 29 and Teterow‰Ûªs Bergring Arena later this year respectively.

The decisions were made after careful consideration and consultation with the FIM, BSI Speedway and the local venues, as well as MFR in Russia and DMSB in Germany, with the health and safety of supporters, riders and staff remaining the top priority.

Following discussions with the Anatoly Stepanov Stadium and Bergring Arena, we are pleased to announce that both the Russian FIM Speedway Grand Prix and the Aztorin German FIM Speedway Grand Prix will return in 2021.

The Aztorin German FIM Speedway Grand Prix will take place on Saturday, May 22, while the Russian FIM Speedway Grand Prix‰Ûªs timing will be announced at a later date.

Paul Bellamy, Managing Director and SVP of Motorsports at IMG said: ‰ÛÏWe are disappointed to be cancelling two of our most popular events, but we look forward to sharing more detail in the coming weeks about the 2020 World Championship contingency plan we‰Ûªre developing with the FIM, involving a minimum of eight FIM Speedway Grand Prix events.

‰ÛÏIn the meantime, we thank our fans for their continued support of the series, and we look forward to returning to Russia and Germany in 2021.‰Û
