BT Sport has won the rights to continue showing exclusive live coverage of MotoGP for another three years.

The provider will hold the rights to show all 19 Grands Prix until the end of the 2021 season, along with every practice, qualifying session and race for MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3.

Andy Haworth, Managing Director of BT Consumer, TV & Sport Content Strategy, said it is "absolutely thrilled" to remain the home of MotoGP in the UK and Ireland.

"Over the past four seasons, we have given MotoGP fans the very best race coverage ever seen on TV in the UK," he commented.

Mr Haworth went on to state that it has a "fantastic team" working on MotoGP, including Suzi Perry, Craig Doyle, Colin Edwards, Neil Hodgson, James Toseland, Keith Huewen and Gavin Emmett.

Furthermore, he noted that Michael Laverty will be joining the BT Sport team for the first time.

"The team will bring every single minute of the action from this fantastic sport to our viewers for another three more years," he said.

Dorna Sports, the commercial rights holder for MotoGP, added that it is "delighted" to have extended its agreement with BT Sport until 2021.

Manel Arroyo, Managing Director at Dorna Sports, said it is looking forward to BT Sport providing British and Irish fans with "such high-quality" coverage and bringing the MotoGP World Championship to a wider audience.

BT Sport will also provide a showcase for emerging talent taking part in the newly launched British Talent Cup, which has been designed as a stepping stone for young riders who wish to compete globally.

Mr Arroyo said Dorna Sports is eager to work with BT Sport on the competition, as it is an example of them "working together to support and develop young riders in the first step on their journey towards the MotoGP World Championship".
