Marquez to Compete in Virtual MotoGP
Marquez will join Rossi, Rins and more taking part in a virtual MotoGP race using the series’ video game.

Some of the sport’s biggest names – from Valentino Rossi (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) and teammate Maverick Viñales to the likes of Fabio Quartararo (Petronas Yamaha SRT), Alex Rins (Team Suzuki Ecstar) and reigning Champion Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) – will be back in action, but this time online playing the official MotoGP™ videogame from developer Milestone.

While the real MotoGP continues to be postponed, the MotoGP eSport Championship powers on for 2020. It will be very interesting to see who the riders stack up in virtual reality this Sunday.

The track for the Virtual Race will be the stunning Autodromo del Mugello, with six laps around the digital rendition of one of the world’s greatest racetracks set to decide the first ever Virtual Race winner. And just before it gets underway, a five-minute qualifying time attack will decide the grid. It remains to be seen how the riders will behave without the usual risk of injury from contact!

The whole event, including qualifying, will be broadcast at 9pm WA Time on Sunday the 29th of March on motogp.com, esport.motogp.com and selected TV broadcasters, as well as across social media platforms including YouTube (via the MotoGP™ and MotoGP™ eSport channels), MotoGP™ eSport Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook (via both the MotoGP™ and MotoGP™ eSport pages).
