"We're saddened to have to announce the cancellation of these iconic events after finding no way through the logistical and operational issues resulting from the pandemic and rearranged calendar," Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO of Dorna Sports said in a statement.
The British Grand Prix was set to take place between Aug. 28-30, while the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix was set to hold between Oct. 23-25.
