eSport MotoGP™ - Where to watch Round 3 of the Global Series

Join Jack Appleyard and Jack Gorst across various platforms to experience Round 3 of the 2020 eSport MotoGP™ Championship finals

Tags 2020

The season is moving into its critical phase so it’s almost time for the third event of the year. Dorna Sports’ eSport projects continue going from strength to strength this season, with Virtual Races and two Virtual Grands Prix initially taking centre stage as on-track competition was on hold – the events generating 331 million impressions and gaining 52 million views – and the dawn of a new Talent Promotion programme, the WINDTRE Rising Stars Series. Meanwhile, the 2020 MotoGP™ eSport Championship has been underway since March, going from thousands of entrants in the Online Challenges to the final 11 now set to race it out for the crown in the four-round Global Series.

A total of 22 gamers (16 from Europe, 6 from the Rest of the World) were entered into the Draft Selection phase, with that then whittled down to the 11 riders who have been chosen by the MotoGP™ Teams as their competitors in the Global Series. The 11 hail from Australia, Brazil, Indonesia, Italy and Spain, and each rider was selected after some stellar time-attack performances in the Online Challenges – creating an incredibly strong Global Series entry list.

It's not over until it's over in MotoGP™ eSport

Due to the restrictions placed on the MotoGP™ paddock during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Global Series Round #3 will be held virtually.

Finalists will be competing from home, with the event broadcast on Friday the 30th of October at 16:00 (GMT+1). As ever, they’ll be racing with the new official MotoGP™20 Videogame from videogame developer, publisher and longstanding partner Milestone – which is available to buy now – with both race direction and the event powered by Lenovo PCs. 

The eleven finalists will race the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli on the Italian Riviera in the first encounter and Australia’s awesome Phillip Island, the jewel in the MotoGP™ calendar for the second. Both will be held over ten laps.
