Portimão circuit to host last race in 2020 MotoGP championship

The Algarve International Autodrome in Portimão will host the 14th and final race of the MotoGP World Speed Championship, the organisation announced on Monday.

The Algarve circuit is part of the 2020 calendar, for which it was in reserve after the cancellation of races in Argentina, Thailand and Malaysia due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Portuguese race on November 22 will end the season, a week after the Grand Prix of the Comunidad Valenciana.

This will be the 15th edition of the Portuguese Motorcycling Grand Prix, after 13 races, between 2000 and 2012, at the Estoril racetrack, and the premiere, in 1987, at the Spanish circuit of Jarama.

After three races, the World Championship is led by Frenchman Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha), with 59 points, 17 more than the Spanish Maverick Viñales (Yamaha). The Portuguese Miguel Oliveira (KTM) occupies 12th place, with 18.

The Autódromo Internacional do Algarve (AIA) will also receive the Formula 1 Portuguese Grand Prix on 25th October.
