MotoGP confirms new Drive to Survive-style Amazon docuseries | MotoGP

Following in the footsteps of F1’s successful Drive-to-Survive series on Netflix, Dorna has confirmed the creation of a new Amazon Exclusive docuseries following the MotoGP World Championship.

Filming has been taking place this season, with the eight-part series (50mins each) making its premiere in 2022.

The series promises to ‘take viewers behind the scenes of the world’s fastest motorcycle racing Championship, showing MotoGP as never seen before…From training sessions to team meetings and everything in between’.

The ‘unprecedented access’ given includes riders Valentino Rossi, Marc Marquez, Fabio Quartararo, Francesco Bagnaia, Joan Mir and Jack Miller, as well as team managers and key figures within the paddock.

The series will premiere exclusively on Prime Video in France, Italy and Spain, and in more than 150 countries and territories in 2022 including the UK and the USA.

“MotoGP is a demanding, impressive sport with a global fanbase and we’re sure that this new Amazon Exclusive production will not disappoint the fans,” said Barry Furlong, VP Prime Video EU.

With F1, like MotoGP, largely locked away behind pay-per-view specialist sports channels, the Drive to Survive series has been praised for boosting general interest in the sport.

That’s especially the case in the US, where Drive to Survive was cited as a major reason behind this year’s huge COTA F1 crowd of 400,000 weekend fans, including a sell-out race day audience of 140,000.
