“We do speak to sports who feel distant or immune to the problem of fixing. That is not MotoGP’s stance. They have been inquisitive, invested and definitive.

We look forward to working with them and their stakeholder for the next few years and helping them keep MotoGP an example of best practice in the world of motorsports”.
