The Styrian GP made its MotoGP debut last season as part of another Austrian double-header at the beginning of the COVID-disrupted 2020 campaign.

Tech3 KTM rider Miguel Oliveira took a shock maiden victory at the Styrian GP with a last-corner overtake on the final lap.

This year’s Styrian GP will form a back-to-back double-header with the Austrian GP due to take place a week later.

MotoGP has also confirmed a deal with the local Styrian authorities has been reached to allow a limited number of fans to attend both the Styrian and Austrian GPs.

This marks the second major change to the 2021 MotoGP calendar after a second Qatar race and the Portuguese GP were added as rounds two and three to replace the delayed US and Argentine events.

On Thursday it was announced the Italian GP at Mugello in two weeks’ time will be held behind closed doors.
