MotoGP has announced that the scheduled race at Mugello will not take place amid rumours the venue could host a Formula 1 race this year.
The pandemic has played havoc with the MotoGP calendar, with the championship yet to begin its season after a raft of cancellations and postponements.
Plans are afoot to begin the season in Jerez with back-to-back races on July 19 and 26, with the revised European leg expected to be unveiled this week.
However, events that will not take place, include the Dutch, German, Finnish, British, Australian, Japanese, and now Italian Grands Prix.
Dorna Sports CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta, commented on the dropping of Mugello from the calendar.
“Sadly, we were not able to find a solution to the logistical and operational issues resulting from the pandemic and rearranged calendar to enable us to visit the venue this season.
“It is a great loss as Mugello is one of the most beautiful circuits in the world and one we are very proud to call the home of the Italian Grand Prix.
“On behalf of Dorna, I would like to thank the fans for the understanding and patience they have shown as we wait for the situation to improve.
“We very much look forward to returning to Mugello next season for another stunning weekend of racing.”
The events cancellation comes amid rumours that the venue could host an F1 race one week after the Italian Grand Prix at Monza.
