On Wednesday, Thailand stated that they’re deliberating about holding its MotoGP race in November, following an eight-month delay due to the ongoing pandemic.

Thailand’s third part of the motorbike racing series, initially scheduled for March 20th to 22nd, was scrapped due to the coronavirus’s spread.

Since then, the nation has been recovering from the pandemic’s fallout, with s somewhat limited resumption of international flights to and from the county.

The motorbike racing organizers are now eyeing a rescheduled event on November 21st and 22nd.

The deputy government spokeswoman, Traisuree Traisaranakul, on the possible resumption of motorbike racing operations, said:

“It depends on conditions like flights, the opening of airports and the readiness of the people.”

Thailand has also expressed a desire to host the premier motorbike racing series for five more years.

The Thai government is planning to submit a bid of €25 million (882.6 million baht), to pay for half of the copyright.

MotoGP races in Thailand garnered a profit of 3 billion baht in each of the last two years, according to official sources.
