Following the overwhelming success of MotoGP™’s first ever Virtual Race, a second event was recently announced and it’s now getting closer – with lights out at 15:00 (GMT +2) on Sunday the 12th of April. 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 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 videogame developer, publisher and longstanding partner Milestone, with MotoGP™20 set for launch soon on Friday the 23rd of April.
