Would broadcasting MotoGP on free-to-air TV allow it to grow bigger than F1 and other large mainstream sports, which are now also locked-away on Pay TV in most countries?

But if so, with the money from Pay TV basically funding MotoGP, and particularly the independent teams, might the championship end up becoming 'bigger' yet find itself in a far worse financial situation?

MotoGP is pure racing.  F1 has become a contrived spectacle.  Both are fun to watch but MotoGP stirs the soul.

I dont begrudge a penny I pay for MotoGP ON BTSports and I am far from rich. For the most part they have done a great job, could maybe change a couple of presenters bucould be worse. It's perfect as it is.

It was even more perfect when they had the multiple cameras, live timing and tracker but they all disappeared this year when the price went up. Its also disappointing that they dont do anything in the close season (as SkyF1 does) and that viewing on a PC is still a pain even after 3 years.

But at least we get Suzi Perry occasionally, which is so much better than the awful Melanie Sykes who got fired moved on to more exciting projects.

That should read 'who *got fired/moved on to more exciting projects.'

*Delete where applicable

Funny in Europe we have the series free to air. It's broadcasted on Eurosport 1
