The Grand Prix of Argentina should have been taking place this weekend, as round three of the 2020 MotoGP season.

Instead, calendar chaos caused by the coronavirus means it's been provisionally postponed until November 15.

However, with only half of the 20 rounds expected to make the final cut this year, it remains to be seen if Termas de Rio Hondo actually hosts a grand prix in 2020.

Either way, to mark what should have been race day in Argentina, here is a short quiz dedicated to the country's motorcycle grand prix history, which began back in 1960...

 

The 2020 season is currently due to start at Sachsenring on June 21, but the German venue has requested a date change due to an extension of the country's ban on large public gatherings.

However, Dorna is currently exploring the possibility of closed-door events and so has not ruled out keeping the original German Grand Prix date just yet.

While a belated start somewhere in Europe is the most likely option, the season would probably end somewhere overseas, due to the European winter. Mid-December is seen as the cut-off date for the 2020 world championship, to avoid pushing more problems into 2021.
