MotoGP™ Virtual Race 2: Get Ready for More!
Another cast of premier class superstars will be lining up, with a few returning from the first race – like reigning MotoGP™ World Champion Marc Marquez – and a few new faces taking on the competition too, including the likes of Valentino Rossi (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) and Danilo Petrucci (Ducati Team).
As ever, the riders will be playing on the official MotoGP™19 Videogame from longstanding partner Milestone.
For Race 2, it’s the Red Bull Ring that plays host as the riders take on the digital rendition of the stunning Styrian track, with the race length set to 10 laps. Just like in the first event, a five-minute qualifying session in time-attack mode will decide the grid positions before the lights go out, although as in Race 1, there’s far more to winning that just being the fastest! And remember, there’s nowhere to hide – with each rider live on the stream throughout the broadcast.
The second event will be shown in full this Sunday, 12 April, 4 pm (Doha time), with qualifying broadcast before the race. Fans can watch on motogp.com and esport.motogp.com, on selected TV channels, and across social media platforms including YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. An Instagram Live with the winner will debrief fans soon after the race too, at 5 pm (Doha time)!
Once again, the riders will each be playing via a private Race Direction lobby, set up to invite each rider to the event and send them the bike settings.
