In partnership with Dorna Sports, Two Wheels for Life have launched a new campaign with a goal of raising funds for their vital work fighting coronavirus on two wheels – ensuring the delivery of test results, education and equipment to hard to reach communities to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and other dangerous diseases in sub-Saharan Africa.

This time, highlights from qualifying will be shown before the three races, with those sessions set to decide the grid before the broadcast. The order will follow a normal Grand Prix weekend as Moto3™ race first, followed by Moto2™, before MotoGP™ take to the stage thereafter.
