MotoGP has issued a revised calendar for the 2020 season, with five venues holding back-to-back races.
MotoGP promoter Dorna Sports announced its plans to resume the season at Jerez with back-to-back races on July 19 and 26, pending government approval.
These dates for the Spanish Grand Prix and Grand Prix of Andalusia have now been confirmed in the calendar unveiled on Thursday.
The Czech GP will follow on August 9, before heading to Austria for back-to-back races on August 16 and 23.
Misano will host two races on September 13 and 20, with the Catalan and French GPs following on September 27 and October 11. The Le Mans race will form another triple-header with the two races at Aragon on October 18 and 25.
A double-header at Valencia on November 8 and 15 brings the European calendar to a close and the season itself should MotoGP be unable to add any overseas events this year.
A decision on the remaining four flyaway races – the United States, Argentine, Thai, and Malaysia Grands Prix – is yet to be made.
Dorna has previously stated that a decision on whether it will stage overseas races this year will be made in July.
An FIM statement said the season will end no later than December 13 and will not comprise more than 17 rounds, including the cancelled Qatar season-opener.
So far, the German, Dutch, Finnish, British, Australian, Japanese and Italian GPs have all been officially struck from the 2020 schedule, while Qatar – which held the opening round for the Moto2 and Moto3 classes in March – will not be rescheduled.
