BT Sport has signed a new three-year deal to continue as the exclusive live broadcaster of MotoGP™ in the UK and Ireland until the end of the 2021 season.

MotoGP™ fans will once again be able to enjoy every minute of the action across race weekends, with BT Sport broadcasting all 19 Grands Prix from around the world.

Every practice, qualifying session and race for MotoGP™, Moto2™ and Moto3™ will be hosted live from the circuit, making sure fans get the best of the sport across each race weekend.

BT Sport will also show and profile some of the up and coming young talent from the first British Talent Cup (BTC), which begins in 2018 and is designed as a stepping-stone for young riders to get onto the world stage.

Part of the Road to MotoGP™ program, the BTC aims to take talent from the British Isles to the top.

Andy Haworth, Managing Director, BT Consumer, TV & Sport Content Strategy, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to continue as the home of MotoGP in the UK and Ireland. Over the past four seasons we have given MotoGP fans the very best race coverage ever seen on TV in the UK.”

Manel Arroyo, Managing Director at Dorna Sports, commented: “We are delighted to have extended our agreement with BT Sport for another three years. During our current agreement with BT Sport, MotoGP™ fans in the UK and Ireland have been treated to live coverage of all sessions of all Grands Prix on the BT Sport channels, with a fantastic team of presenters onsite to bring all the behind the scenes news and action from the paddock.”
