Tags MotoGP, 2020

In the first episode of BT Sport's brand-new series 'The Greatest Years', airing every Sunday on the channel, MotoGP™'s British broadcast partner focused on the 1992 500cc World Championship fight with four classic races from that year taking centre stage. Catalunya, Assen, Donington Park and Kylami were all shown with the key figures from each race and the key figures from that incredible year voicing their opinion on the fight for the World title.

1992 was the first year that Grand Prix racing headed to Catalunya with Mick Doohan and Wayne Rainey putting on a show for the Catalan fans. The 1992 Assen TT was without both Rainey and Doohan, with the Australian having suffered a bad leg break in qualifying the day before. It eventually saw Alex Criville take victory after Kevin Schwantz was taken out by Eddie Lawson during the fight for victory.

Donington Park was famous for two reasons: Wayne Gardner claiming victory just 24 hours on from announcing his retirement from the sport and Schwantz stood at Redgate corner waving the diminished adhesion flag himself after crashing out on someone's oil. Finally, viewers were treated to the season finale in South Africa as Rainey clinched the World Championship despite Doohan's heroic efforts to try and salvage the World crown despite his leg being far from 100%.

BT Sport caught up with eventual World Champion Rainey, Doohan and Schwantz over the course of the show with all three in-depth interviews available to watch on BT Sport's Twitter and Facebook around the world. Tune in this coming Sunday at 10am where the crew will be focusing on the incredible 2015 MotoGP™ World Championship.
