Dorna has announced that MotoGP's planned 2021 debut at the KymiRing has been cancelled due to the 'ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, as well as resulting travel complications to Finland'.

However, there was some good news for the KymiRing in the form of an extended five-year agreement, assuring a place on the calendar until at least 2026.

Replacing the planned July 11 Finnish race will be a return of the Styria Grand Prix, introduced last season, on August 6-8, the weekend before the official Austrian Grand Prix.

The Red Bull Ring thus becomes the second circuit on the 2021 calendar to host two races this year, after Qatar, but other back-to-backs could follow should further cancellations occur.

Both the Styrian and Austrian Grands Prix expect to welcome a limited number of spectators this season...
