Amazon has reached an agreement with Dorna Sports to produce a docuseries which follows the FIM MotoGP World Championship, premiering in 2022. 

Produced by The MediaPro Studio, and featuring eight 50 minute episodes, the series looks to give viewers an insight of the behind the scenes aspect of the competition.

Manel Arroyo, Chief Commercial Officer at Dorna Sports, explained: “The close collaboration between all parties, and this project with Mediapro and Prime Video, more than ensures that it will be a success. 

“During this intense season, which ended in Valencia, the work between Dorna and The MediaPro Studio has been constant, with the idea of extracting the best and most outstanding moments of each Grand Prix of the season.”

Including significant names in the MotoGP world like Valentino Rossi, Marc Marquez and Fabio Quartararo, the series will air on Prime Video in over 150 countries including France, Italy and Spain, the UK and the USA. 

“The help of the six manufacturers, the teams and the riders will help us see and enjoy so many things that, until now, have remained behind closed doors, creating a product that will live up to the impressive quality and experience of their previous productions and documentaries,” continued Arroyo.

The grand prix organisation describes the series as having ‘unprecedented access’ to aspects that have not been previously shown to the public. This includes training sessions, team meetings and day-to-day workings of the teams and riders.

Laura Fernández Espeso, CEO of The MediaPro Studio, noted: “The collaboration with Dorna and the support of Amazon Prime Video have been decisive in launching this series. 

“We believe that it will appeal not only to fans of motorcycling, but to all viewers interested in a good story, in this case of triumph and sacrifice both in sporting and in personal terms, which we are able to show thanks to the unique access that, for the first time, the protagonists of the championship have given to our production team.”

The new exclusive joins Amazon’s portfolio of sports content which currently includes Manchester City, Six Dreams, and Fernando – which follows racing driver and double Formula 1 Champion Fernando Alonso.

“MotoGP is a demanding, impressive sport with a global fanbase and we’re sure that this new Amazon Exclusive production will not disappoint the fans. We are delighted to create quality content with global sports stars,” added Barry Furlong, VP Prime Video EU.
