Fresh off celebrating its first year anniversary, leading sportsentertainment platform SPOTV will be closing the 2022 MotoGPTM season with the 21st race, Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana, in Valencia on 4–6 November.
SPOTV viewers and motorsports fans have been able to enjoy full coverage of 20 MotoGPTM races this year to date on its linear channels as well as on SPOTV NOW – which also includes the Helicam and onboard camera views.
Additionally, local Bahasa Malay and Thai commentary were made available to Malaysian and Thai viewers in the respective territories.
Anticipation is high for the last MotoGPTM race, as racing legend and nine-time World Champion, Valentino Rossi will be gracing the event with his attendance as VR46 Academy star Pecco aims for title glory at #TheDecider.
All eyes will be peeled as Pecco will potentially become the first VR46 Academy rider to win the title in the premier class, as well as the first Italian to win the MotoGPTM title since Rossi back in 2009.
SPOTV will be on the ground at Valencia to bring fans additional content that they can access on social media such as: Behind-the-scenes and daily highlight clips, Facebook onsite Live sessions at the paddock, starting grids and fan zones as well as exclusive rider interviews.
