The MotoGP™ eSport Global Series exploded into life at end of May as the first round of 2022 delivered plenty of thrills, spills and intrigue. After having a month to reflect on those two races, round two is upon us, with two more all-important races taking place on Friday 1st July at 16.00 (GMT +2).
Twelve finalists have been chosen by the MotoGP™ teams as their competitors in the Global Series, expanded to five rounds and ten races for 2022. The twelve hopefuls hail from all around the world, and make up arguably the strongest Global Series line-up yet.
After the year opened with an on-site event at the ItalianGP, the next three rounds of the Global Series rounds will be Virtual Rounds. In another change for this year, there will be a different points-scoring system for these Virtual Rounds. The winner of a race will score 12.5 points, the runner up 10, with third place scoring 8.

The action-packed show that includes the third and fourth races of this year’s series gets underway on Friday 1st July at 16.00 (GMT +2) with Jack Appleyard and Jack Gorst hosting and providing the commentary.
The first two races of this campaign showed how this year’s contest is wide open. Former champions Adriaan_26 and Trast73 split the victories, but AndreaSaveri11, PieroRicciuti55, Jack Hammer4658 and Cristianmm17 are all in the mix. After two races, just 14 points cover the first six names in the standings.
The two tracks disputed in Round 2 couldn’t be more different: Race 1 sees the finalists tackle the stop-start Le Mans in France while Race 2 will be held at the historic TT Circuit Assen in the Netherlands.
Friday’s action will be available to watch live on motogp.com and esport.motogp.com, on selected TV broadcasters, and across social media platforms including YouTube (via the MotoGP™ and MotoGP™ eSport channels), MotoGP™ eSport Twitter, Instagram, Facebook (via MotoGP™ and MotoGP™ eSport pages) and Twitch via MotoGP™ and MotoGP™ eSport.
