British Eurosport MotoGP announcement this week

1 of 1

As MCN exclusively revealed last week, MotoGP will stay on British Eurosport in 2009, with an official announcement expected later this week.

MCN understands a deal has been reached between Dorna and the BBC to allow British Eurosport to continue to screen all three Grand Prix world championship classes.

But as we reported last week, the MotoGP race will not be screened live, but delayed later on the same day.

British Eurosport won’t screen the MotoGP race live because the BBC has exclusive rights to screen the premier class clash live. The 125 and 250GP races though will be live on British Eurosport.

Full details of the new agreement will be unveiled later this week but there is still no confirmation of whether the popular commentary team of Julian Ryder, Toby Moody and Randy Mamola will remain.
