What got you watching MotoGP?

What is your earliest memory for motorcycling racing?

Was it on the TV, in the media or at a track? Is MotoGP doing enough to attract younger fans for future generations?

Road Racing

Where indeed! We're about to

Where indeed! We're about to start on the fastest road race in the world next week and it gets totally ignored. Even the articles on the recent Southern 100 have vanished and nothing recent comes up on a search.

Just so much better than car racing.

The raw skill, balls, the different tech each year. The races are almost all great and the now the sattelite teams even seem to have a chance. What's not to like?

Kevin Schwantz & Carl Fogarty

Parents always had bike but didn't get in to racing until '94 when I was 9 in my School Library I found a Kevin Schwantz world motorcycle champion book, then my Dad took me to Brands Hatch to watch WSBK and Carl Fogarty.

I used to be more into F1 but have to say there is just more excitement in MotoGP these days. The current line-up is outstanding and with Zarco breaking through and Dovi surprising everyone this season 2018 is set to be a belter. Can't wait!!!
