The 2021 International Road Racing Championship will now not begin until July. The season should have got under way with the Dutch round of Hengelo, at the Varsselring, but the Covid-19 pandemic and restrictions introduced in The Netherlands make a May date impossible, the round therefore postponed until September.

The first round of the IRRC will therefore take place in Finland, at the legendary city circuit of Imatra, followed by Chimay in Belgium, Horice in the Czech Republic, the aforementioned Hengelo, and then the grand finale in Germany, in Frohburg.

The updated calendar

2-4 July: Imatra

23-25 July: Chimay

14-15 August: Horice

4-5 September: Hengelo

18-19 September: Frohburg
