All video content is produced by MotoGP with riders and teams from across all four classes. The target is to offer racing fans the opportunity to view behind the scenes footage as well as on and off the track action.

MotoGP has a large presence on social media with 355,000 new fans on Facebook last year bringing the total fanbase of the official page to over 13 million. It’s also popular on Instagram as well with almost nine million followers.
