MotoGP™ is the premier motorcycle racing World Championship; a nineteen-race series visiting over fifteen countries and multiple continents with global television coverage. Many nationalities of the world’s most skilled riders line a grid armed with cutting-edge motorcycle technology – with prototype machinery fielded by manufacturers including Aprilia, Ducati, Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha and KTM.
MotoGP™ was established as a World Championship by the FIM (Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme) in 1949. It is the oldest motorsports championship in the world and consists of three racing classes that take to the track on a typical Grand Prix weekend. Formerly labelled ‘500cc’, the championship underwent a change in 2002, with new technical regulations permitting the introduction of four-stroke machinery and increasing the engine capacity to 990cc thus becoming MotoGP™.
From 2007 the rules were altered, limiting engine capacity to 800cc, and once again from 2012, setting the maximum engine displacement at 1000cc. MotoGP™ has been administrated by commercial rights owners Dorna Sports under the supervision of the FIM since 1992.
MotoGP™ has a rich history, with Grand Prix events having taken place in every corner of the world since its inception in 1949. Italy, Great Britain, Spain, the USA and Australia are just some of the nationalities that have produced riders with a high number of race victories and world titles -, the details of which can be found in the Results & Statistics section.
As well as the premier class there are two ultra-competitive smaller capacity World Championship Grand Prix categories, which form part of ‘MotoGP™’. The Moto3™ (formerly 125cc) and Moto2™ (formerly 250cc) World Championships have their own races at each Grand Prix, meaning that by the end of the season three World Champions are crowned.
