COTA 2021?

I’d really like to go to COTA this year. Any opinions on whether or not it’s going to happen? April is coming up quick...

I am betting not in April.. but perhaps later in the year.

I have already hooked up my crew for April 2022. We are going to go then. Been a while for me and I am due as hell to see a MotoGP race live.

You’re planing on some serious riding in ‘22 with COTA in April and IOM in June!

They just announced that the Sepang test are cancelled... I was a gambling man, I wouldn't bet on MotoGP coming to COTA or Argentina any time soon. We may have another season starter at Jerez (again).

Even without Covid, the riders were pretty adamant about not coming back to COTA unless they repaved the track to get rid of the bumps.

Budman, did you see they’re planning 5 rounds of the King of the Baggers?!

Shame about the TT not running again this year but COVID....

The Australian F1 race has already been postponed, too.

COTA is not going to happen, and an american gp round is probably a few years off, if at all

the usa market for moto is on life support and retracting, the riders hate the track, usa until now had zero federal covid plan and is behind the 8 ball, the track in an area that plays politics with covid, etc etc. its not hapening

im not making political stances, only saying that politics itself is a major reasdon why the race wont happen

covid responses is 100% relevant to the gp schedule, its literally the defining factor in the series and its schedule

The lack of a coordinated response to covid, and Dornas inability to plan around that, is literally the reason it’s not happening, and why races ARE happening, elsewhere

No way- literally really? So about that "zero federal covid plan?" Tell us something new and fresh.
