MotoGP Qatar Motorcycle Grand Prix, Sunday 10 March, 4.30pm, BT Sport 2 HD (CH 528)

The bikes are ready, the engines are purring, and the superstars are donning their leathers for a new season of unmissable MotoGP action that starts Sunday 10 March in Qatar!


Can’t wait for the tyre-screeching drama to get under way? Then click on the video below to find out more about the big numbers behind the new season.


With all 19 races live and exclusive on BT Sport, you don’t have to miss any of the twists or turns to come in 2019. Plus, with the awesome Virgin TV Go app, you can follow all of the adrenaline-pumping action on the go.


This season’s burning question is whether anyone can stop the magnificent Marc Márquez. The 25-year-old won a fifth championship in breathtaking fashion last season, but with fellow Spaniard Jorge Lorenzo now on the same team, expect the champ to be pushed to the limit this time around.


Other pretenders to Márquez’s throne include the youthful Maverick Viñales, last year’s runner-up Andrea Dovizioso (who won in Qatar 12 months ago), and the legendary Valentino Rossi. One more title win would see Rossi equal fellow Italian Giacomo Agostini’s record of eight world championships, but with his last crown coming a decade ago, can this icon of the sport rediscover his winning touch?


Closer to home, British hopes lie on the shoulders of the one and only Cal Crutchlow. Coventry’s finest enjoyed a solid 2018 campaign, with a rare race win in Argentina helping him to finish seventh overall.


Ready for a season packed with epic entertainment? Strap yourself in and get ready for the ultimate thrill ride. It’s wild. It’s unpredictable. And it’s all exclusively live on BT Sport.
