Initially scheduled for the weekend of October 15-17 at the Chang International Circuit, this is the second year it has fallen foul of the pandemic.
“Despite the best efforts of all parties involved, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and resulting restrictions have obliged the cancellation of the event,” MotoGP said in a statement issued on Wednesday (July 21).
MotoGP added that it is working on a replacement race for what would have been the 16th race of the season.
Further MotoGP cancellations due to COVID-19 have been witnessed in Japan, Australia and Finland. The Styrian Grand Prix, scheduled for August 8, has replaced the Finnish race.
