The Circuito de Jerez is in talks with MotoGP to host the first two rounds of the 2020 season toward the end of July.
The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has severely affected the MotoGP schedule, with the opening eleven races either being postponed or cancelled outright.
The series is currently scheduled to commence in early August with the Czech Grand Prix at Brno.
However, MotoGP promoter Dorna Sports looking to bolster its calendar by organising a season-opener in Spain – specifically, at the Circuito de Jerez.
The plan is for the Spanish venue to host the first two events of the season over two consecutive weekends, with the World Superbike Championship to follow the week after.
Speaking with Diario de Jerez, the mayor of the town of Jerez de la Frontera, Mamen Sanchez said the prospect of a race at the local circuit is one they could not pass up.
“It is a good offer that we cannot reject.
“It is very tempting since it would mean the presence of numerous people in the city for three weeks, with the consequent benefit for the hospitality sector.”
He added that the races would almost certainly be held behind closed doors.
A revised calendar is expected to be issued toward the end of May, provided no further delays inhibit the process.
