Sprinting into 2023: the wait is over!

It’s time to get yourselves set for the 2023 season as the Portimao Test signals Round 1 getting ever closer

The wait is over. Well, almost! The Portimao Test is right around the corner, meaning we’re edging ever closer to the start of the much anticipated 2023 MotoGP™ season kicking off in Portugal.

This also means it’s time to get signed up for VideoPass. So much has changed since 2022, including the number of stars that have swapped teams or manufacturers. There are eight riders – excluding our 2023 rookie Augusto Fernandez (GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3) – that are embarking on a new challenge in 2023, including recent race winners Enea Bastianini (Ducati Lenovo Team), Jack Miller (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) and Miguel Oliveira (RNF MotoGP™ Team), and we got a first taste of how their adaptation was going at the Sepang Test.

And there’s no better way to keep close tabs on their progress over the two critical days in Portimao than getting VideoPass to watch After The Flag, highlights and interviews, TimingPass to follow the Official Test live, or getting both with the ‘Full Pass’ bundle.

By getting VideoPass, you’ll also have unlimited access to all the on demand video content we have, including brand-new documentaries ‘There Can Be Only One’ and ‘MotoGP™ Stories: The Resurrection of Ducati’. What better way to keep you entertained before Round 1 begins?
