Suzi Perry back in MotoGP with BT Sport

Suzi Perry joins BT Sport, will share MotoGP presenting duties with Craig Doyle plus some Speedway and WRC.
Suzi Perry is returning to MotoGP as part of BT Sport's 2016 TV line-up.

Perry fronted the BBC's WSBK and MotoGP coverage for 13 years, stepping down at the end of 2009 to concentrate on her mainstream TV work. Perry later became lead presenter for the BBC's F1 coverage from 2013-2015 (pictured).

But with the BBC losing the F1 rights, Perry has now been confirmed as joining BT Sport 'to play a prominent role across a range of live sport and programming... including the FIM MotoGP World Championship, FIM Speedway and the World Rally Championship'.

BT Sport has the exclusive rights to live MotoGP coverage in the UK. The championship begins in Qatar on March 20 and Perry will be sharing presenting duties with Craig Doyle this season.

She said: “I'm really excited to be joining BT Sport and working with their tremendous team. Motorsport continues to be massive in the UK and I can't wait to bring BT Sport viewers all of the action from in front of the camera.”

“Suzi is an extremely popular and well respected TV presenter and I'm delighted she is joining our team," added Simon Green, head of BT Sport. "Our viewers will really benefit from her vast motorsport knowledge and experience across our growing portfolio of motorsport.”

Perry and five other celebrities are currently raising money for charity by sailing around the UK for a Sport Relief challenge.

Yearby23: Toby Moody, Julian Ryder, Suzi Perry, Gavin Emmett. That would be my ideal line up. With occasional co-commentary from Spies and Edwards.
Moody and Ryder, those guys made me go from liking MotoGP/500's to absolutely falling in love with it when I was growing up. I know a lot of people will disagree with this, but for me they were the best all round commentary duo. Funny, informative, intelligent and the little bits of behind the scenes info they gave about a quick chat they'd had with a riders mechanic the night before, or a rider they spoke to in the hotel that morning.
