MotoGP 2017 season live on BT Sport

0

MotoGP returns for the 2017 season and BT Sport will have exclusive live coverage of every race as the pinnacle of two-wheel motorsport heads on its global journey from March to November.

Last year’s chaotic title race saw nine different riders win races and while it is unlikely we will see such a diverse field triumph this time around, several will fancy their chances of pushing reigning champion Marc Marquez all the way.

The Honda rider, a three-time Moto GP champion by the age of 23, is looking for his fourth premier class crown in just five years having wrestled back the ultimate prize from fellow Spaniard Jorge Lorenzo.

Marquez is once again the bookies favourite’ to retain his title but will face a stiff challenge from the likes of Lorenzo, Maverick Vinales, and the ever-green Valentino Rossi.

Elsewhere, there is a strong British representation on the grid this season, with four of the 23 riders hailing from the United Kingdom, in Cal Crutchlow, Scott Redding, Bradley Smith and Sam Lowes.

Crutchlow had a superb 2016 and secured two race wins, two further podium finishes and a seventh place finish in the standings, making him the highest placed Brit.

Details of how to follow the 2017 MotoGP season on the box can be found below, while further information, in-depth race schedules and live timing are available via motogp.com.

BT Sport will broadcast all 18 rounds of the 2017 MotoGP season exclusively live, starting with the season-opening Qatar Grand Prix in March.

Every on-track session will be broadcast live across its channels, with its 2017 coverage getting underway with a special preview show on Thursday, March 23 at 2pm, ahead of the opening practice session of the season in Qatar.

Suzi Perry returns to lead the channel’s live coverage from trackside, with presenting duties shared between Perry, Craig Doyle and Gavin Emmett throughout the season.

Expert analysis and punditry comes from James Toseland, Neil Hodgson and Colin Edwards, while Keith Huewen and Julian Ryder return to deliver their unique brand of live race commentary, and Gavin Emmett has the latest news from the pit lane.

As well as tuning in on television, subscribers can live stream MotoGP throughout the new campaign on BTSport.com or via BT Sport App.

In a change for the 2017 season, fans without a BT Sport subscription will be able to watch free-to-air highlights of every race on Channel 5.

Taking over from ITV4, which carried terrestrial coverage of the championship for the last three years, Channel 5 will showcase the best of the action from each round in an hour-long highlights show, which will be shown in a guaranteed prime-time slot on Monday nights following each race weekend.
