2020 Bol d'Or cancelled as Estoril becomes World Endurance final

This year's Bol d'Or will not take place as the local authority has banned spectators from the event so it will be replaced by the 12 Hours of Estoril.

The Bol d'Or 2020, the proposed finale of the current FIM EWC season, was supposed to host Endurance fans at Le Castellet in the south of France on 19-20 September.

Following the strengthening of restrictions to stop Covid-19 in France, the local authority, Prefecture of Var, has withdrawn the authorisation to welcome spectators to the event. This decision has forced Editions Larivière, the race organiser, to cancel the Bol d'Or 2020.


"It is a huge disappointment that the iconic Bol d'Or has had to be cancelled due to the extension of the restrictions in France," said FIM president Jorge Viegas.  

"I would like to warmly thank the Circuito Estoril, the Promoter Eurosport Events, the Portuguese Federation for the efforts made to prepare for this race with such short deadlines.

"A big thank you also to all the teams, the riders, the officials for their flexibility in adapting to these changes linked to the current health situation, and in the interest of the World Championship.

"I am very happy to see the FIM Endurance World Championship returning to Estoril for the race which will close the 2020 season."

So, the 2019-2020 FIM EWC Finale will instead take place in Portugal on 27 September. This 12-hour race will benefit from the bonus of 150% of the points in both EWC and Superstock categories, as well as intermediate points in the standings after eight hours of racing.
