MotoGP™ Finland cancelled

Dorna Sports, IRTA and FIM have decided to cancel the MotoGP Grand Prix of Finland at KymiRing circuit in July. Despite the best efforts of the local organizer, it has not been possible to secure the proper running of the event this year due to KymiRing not meeting the requirements set by Dorna Sports, IRTA and FIM. It has not been confirmed whether KymiRing Grand Prix of Finland will be replaced by another Grand Prix in the 2022 event calendar. There is a possibility that the Grand Prix will be held in Finland during summer 2023.
