Although an international sport, there is a lot of mystery to the fast-paced sport of MotoGP™. Speed, crashes, and young riders are main components that come to mind when you think about MotoGP. MotoGP is so much more that.  Here’s a quick glimpse inside the sport, so you can know how fascinating it really is!


It's Global 

MotoGP is an international sport, with teams and riders representing several nations. The globalization of the sport has brought in fans from all around the world to witness the best riders lineup for a podium finish. Despite the sport being old, the fans are not. Throughout the approximate nine-month season, MotoGP travels to 13 countries, four continents, and is covered by media outlets across the world.

Different Levels

When people hear MotoGP now, they may know veterans like Valentino Rossi or the newfound, legendary champion, Marc Marquez. The sport has several different divisions, with different champions in each. It is divided into Moto3™, Moto2™, and MotoGP.

A Weekend Event  

Each of the 18-race circuits for Grand Prix takes place over a three-day time period. The first two days of the race weekends focus on setting up, practicing, and qualifying rounds. The third day is when the official, thrilling Grand Prix race takes place.
