Though the title battle may be over, there’s plenty to look forward to if past Australian Grand Prix races are anything to go by…

As the Australian Grand Prix gears up for action and the end of another thrilling MotoGP season draws near, it’s safe to say that Spaniard Marc Márquez has, for want of a better phrase, “absolutely smashed it”.
Despite being (by MotoGP standards, anyway) positively middle-aged at 25, the Honda rider has claimed – and set – record after record, and regularly shown that he is one of the best riders to have ever graced the sport, claiming a historic sixth world title at last weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix.
But there’s still plenty left in the tank, as the Australian GP is a hotspot for some serious action – sweeping bends, blustering winds and packed grandstands make for one of MotoGP’s most electric atmospheres. And if past races are anything to go by, this is one Grand Prix race you definitely won’t want to miss.
