MotoGP is the premier motorcycle racing World Championship; an eighteen-race series visiting thirteen countries, four continents and with pan-global television coverage.
Established as a World Championship by the FIM (Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme) in 1949, MotoGP is the oldest motorsports championship in the world.
On a Grand Prix weekend there is a race in each of MotoGP's three categories: Moto3, Moto2 and MotoGP. All three classes use four-stroke engines. However, in the past, there have been other classes of racing including 350cc, 250cc, 125cc, 80/50cc and Sidecars on GP weekends.
In 2010, 250cc two-strokes were replaced by the new Moto2 600cc four-stroke class. In 2012, 125cc two-strokes were replaced by the Moto3 250cc four-stroke class with maximum weight limit becoming 65 kilos with gas, and the engine capacity for MotoGP increasing from 800cc to 1000cc.
Over the years, Grand Prix motorcycling has evolved and changed, but the premise has remained the same; the world's best riders, on the finest machinery, battling for World Championship glory.
Countries, from across the globe, are represented in the World Championships including : Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Qatar, San Marino, Spain, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, UK and USA.
MotoGP has close links with the Riders for Health charity, which helps in providing health workers in Africa, access to reliable transportation, so that they can reach the most isolated people with regular and predictable health care.
