Ok, I know most people on here like the 4 wheel f1 Motorsport, but I was wondering if anyone knew of a channel in Europe that covers the motoGP (motorcycle) grand prix ?

Here in the uk we have got fairly good coverage of most actual races on bbc, but the support classes and qualifying etc is a little thin on the ground.

I'd like to find a channel that gives maybe some more coverage, but not sure where to look.

The championship is managed by Dorna (Spanish company) but I am hoping for some other fta coverage.

I am in south uk with a dm8000 and one of those motorised square dishes and a fairly good coverage.

I came across this yesterday whilst searching German TV schedules for F1 Free Practice coverage ---- give me a few minutes and I'll see if I can unearth the info.


Edit: No joy. I vaguely recollect it was on Sky Deutschland, which isn't, of course, FTA.

Sorry.

I think Sport1 on 19.2°E is your best bet for FTA coverage. Not sure if they'll do free practice though.

Thanks guys, fta would be great, but as with most things in life, where there is a will there is a way!

Overseas Subscription tv would of course be a second option, but I wouldn't know anything about setting things like that up ;)

Did you get sorted ?

Motogp The BBC Show LIVE qualifying on the red button for all 3 motogp classes moto3.moto2.motogp,on astra2 28.2e
usually Saturday late morning/Lunchtime / fta / sky / freesat if you have freeview in the uk its on there too ch301 if there's clashes with other big events
it gets dropped from freeview as a rule

motogp races the moto3.moto2 races are LIVE Sunday again on the BBC red button astra28.2e / fta / sky / freesat / freeview ch301
motogp race is usually live on BBC2 + BBC-HD Channel

motogp in Europe sport1 channel Germany fta astra1 19.2e usually show the practice Friday afternoons LIVE and qualifying sessions LIVE Saturdays
Sunday they Show the 3 motogp Races LIVE Too

if you like Bike racing WSBK (World Superbike Series) Races are usually shown LIVE on Race Day (Sunday) fta on Eurosport Germany 19.2e
check the motogp / Wsbk sites for there race weekend schedules

the next motogp Race is Assen DutchTT if i remember they Race on Saturdays . so its Thursday.Friday for Practice Qualifying. Saturday is Raceday (not Sunday)
