MotoGP’s anticipated round at the not-so-new-anymore Kymiring has been postponed yet again with ‘homologation works’ and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine cited as reasons.
The Finnish – but not finished – track was due to hold its inaugural grand prix in early July but it has been put back to 2023. The series will now run over 20 races
A statement from MotoGP bosses reads:
Homologation works at the KymiRing, together with the risks caused by the ongoing geopolitical situation in the region, have sadly obliged the cancellation of the Finnish Grand Prix in 2022.
The current circumstances have created delays and put the ongoing work at the new circuit at risk. All parties have therefore agreed that the track’s debut must be postponed to 2023, when MotoGP™ looks forward to returning to Finland for the first time in four decades.
