The original date for the WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca event was July 10-12.
“With the way things are in California right now, there is no way we can race with spectators at Laguna Seca in July,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “Thus, we’ve decided to reschedule the event for October and allow our fans the time to change their travel plans and make new ones that include the Speedfest at Monterey this fall. As always, the safety of our fans, our teams and our riders are of the utmost importance to us and postponing the race is our best option to ensure that.”
The original date at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca called for the race to be the third round of the 2020 MotoAmerica Series. With the change, the GEICO Motorcycle Superbike Speedfest at Monterey will be the ninth round of the 10-round series – two weeks after the October 9-11 round at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
The series is set to kick off at Road America next weekend, May 29-31, without fans in attendance.
