The virtual Grand Prix in Jerez on May 3 includes one race per class

The Spanish Grand Prix was supposed to take place on May 3rd at the Circuito de Jerez. It would be the fifth race of the season MotoGP been, but due to the corona pandemic none of the scheduled races could take place so far. The racing scene has for some time been shifting to the virtual as an alternative.

Two races have already taken place online, one in Mugello, the other in Spielberg. For the third date, you chose the date Jerez, where you really should be driving. Therefore, this time the event operates under the name “Red Bull Grand Prix of Spain” as an official virtual GP.

As such, it not only includes the premier class; for the first time, Moto2 and Moto3 are also included. While there are ten riders in each of the small classes, in MotoGP each team can send one pilot into the race. With Repsol-Honda, LCR-Honda and Tech-3-KTM, there are three exceptions.

As the reigning world champion team, Repsol sends both drivers. Tech 3 is also occupied twice, since it takes over the starting position from the KTM factory team. LCR, on the other hand, is completely missing in the line-up. Neither Cal Crutchlow nor Takaaki Nakagami are there on Sunday. Technical uncertainties are obviously to blame.
