With MotoGP concluding in an epic showdown in Valencia last weekend, Marc Marquez being crowned the 2017 World Champion in a bonkers 30 lap race to the chequered flag, it cemented the decision for me that MotoGP is currently motorsport’s hottest property.
I have been following the two-wheeled championship since the Mugello round in Italy last year after acquiring BT Sport on my TV. Since that first-action packed race and a mind-blowing last lap battle from Marquez and then-champion Jorge Lorenzo, I have been hooked. For me, at this moment in time, it remains the only racing series that without fail has me on the edge of my sofa every race, jumping up and down and shouting at the television: surely how motorsport is meant to be, right?
Where other mainstream motorsports have failed in my expectations over the last couple years, MotoGP has risen from strength to strength.
