"We have given our best. That is our commitment to motorcycling fans who have always filled the stands of the circuit", stated the general director of the facility, Gonzalo Gobert.

"It is going to be a strange situation to have the best riders in the world on the track and not be able to have an audience in the stands, but the safety and health of all are paramount and we are already thinking of being able to offer the best image of the circuit and the Valencian Community to the millions of viewers who will follow us on television "he pointed out.

The circuit has extended the deadline for fans to request the reinstatement of their seats until November 15 and has opened the possibility for those who wish to keep their tickets for the year 2021.
