Motogp Championship 2014

By Expert Author: Hue Stoor

MotoGP is the premier motorbike racing Championship.

The 2014 MotoGP calendar has an 18 race season covering four continents, 14 countries with international media coverage and following.

Eight nationalities of the world's greatest motorbike racers line the grid, armed with cutting-edge motorbike technology and prototype engineering, fielded by three manufacturers; Ducati, Yamaha and Honda.

Wayne Rainey is one of the most exciting riders to have graced the sport, which is famous for its incredible speed and supreme racing that pits man and machine against each other.

The Philip Island, Australia race track provides some of the exciting racing of the whole MotoGP season, with its flowing bends and expansive straights.

The motorcycles are built for pure speed and cornering ability, achieving speeds of more than 220mph/ 350kph.

The entirety of rubber from the tyre touching the circuit surface at any one time is about the size of a credit card, even when the motorcycle is going round the corner with his knee and elbow caressing the tarmac.

MotoGP is divided into 3 divisions: MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3. At the moment all the classes use four-stroke engines with MotoGP using a 1000cc motor, Moto2 uses a 600cc engine and Moto3 a 250cc motor.

The history of MotoGP racing dates back to the late 1940's, which also used to feature sidecar racing as part of the MotoGP calendar.

MotoGP has been affected by many tragedies over the years. The death of Simon Prior highlighted serious safety concerns and forced the governing body to introduce changes. Recently the death of Marco Simincelli who many pundits had tipped for future success.

The courage and technical skills of a MotoGP racer are unparalleled, with only a leather suit and crash helmet for protection from the hard circuit.

The emersion of Marc Marquez and the revitalised Valentino Rossi will ensure the 2014 MotoGP season will be as enthralling as any other.
