MotoGP Season Guide 2011 in The Times
Posted on Mar 09, 2011 by Nick Harris
The sport that is widely regarded as the most demanding and exciting of all World Championship arenas will have a dedicated 16-page special report in The Times newspaper this week.
The MotoGP season preview will be published in The Times on Saturday March 12th, just eight days before the 2011 season starts under the floodlights in Qatar. The popularity of the MotoGP World Championship has exploded over the last decade with the revolution led by the charismatic Italian Valentino Rossi.
Last year more than 2.3 million fans packed the 18 grand prix venues in eight months of pure adrenaline in 13 countries on four separate continents. Staggering television and social media statistics tell the story of a championship that has not only stood firm but pushed forward in the face of economic adversity. For the first time in over 20 years eight British riders will compete in the three championship classes and two of them, Bradley Smith and Scott Redding, are already grand prix winners.
This 2011 season guide will be a way of celebrating the 63rd season of MotoGP while giving the reader an insight into the history and passions of this fascinating sport. With a distribution of 850,000 copies and a potential readership of 1.73 million, the Raconteur published report in The Times is the best way to prepare for the new season.
