With on-track racing a distant prospect for the foreseeable future, Dorna is acting to fill the hole created by the COVID-19 outbreak.

This week, they announced that on Sunday, March 29th, they will be holding a virtual race around Mugello using the official MotoGP video game.

The race is to start at 3pm CET, and will feature some of the top MotoGP riders playing the game. Valentino Rossi, Maverick Viñales, Fabio Quartararo, Alex Rins, and Marc Marquez have all signed up for Sunday’s virtual race.

In addition, Dorna is opening up its video vault to everyone. It is making all of the contents of the website available for free, to anyone who signs up, with the exception of users in France and Italy, for contractual reasons.

Users can register for the videopass, and gain access to all of the races in the archive, as well as documentaries, features, and more. Watching the races from different camera angles, on board and the helicopter, is highly recommended.

The free access to the videopass content will end once racing resumes once again, whenever that is.
