A three-year agreement sees the Blockchain Tech company become a partner of the MotoGP™ World Championship

Dorna Sports is delighted to welcome as an Official Sponsor of the FIM MotoGP™ World Championship. The new three-year agreement begins this season and also includes the title sponsorship of the 2021 Austrian Grand Prix, as well as a trackside presence at different circuits on the calendar throughout 2021, 2022 and 2023.
