Some details about BT Sport’s MotoGP coverage for the 2015 season are beginning to filter through.
Abi Griffiths and Craig Doyle will be sharing presenting duties again for the 2015 season. Griffiths noted on Twitter that she will be flying out to Qatar on Wednesday, meaning that coverage from Qatar at least will be presented on-site. This was also the case last year though when Melanie Sykes presented, so we will see what happens regarding the remainder of the year.
The rest of the team is the same: Keith Huewen will partner Julian Ryder in the commentary box, whilst Neil Hodgson and Gavin Emmett will be back as reporters. Iwan Thomas is returning, presenting a programme called The Chequered Flag that will air in the hour following the MotoGP race on BT Sport. It will be repeated multiple times after the original showing. MotoGP Tonight is not listed in the schedules for Tuesday 31st March, nor is its counterpart Motorsport Tonight. It is unclear whether the show has been axed, although we’ll soon find out when the schedules for the following week come out.
BT Sport will continue to broadcast every race weekend exclusively live, with ITV4 broadcasting highlights of every race on Monday evenings.
Update on March 28th – James Toseland is with BT this weekend, so I’ve removed that bit from the article. Also, confirmation from Gavin Emmett in their qualifying show that Craig Doyle and Toseland will be on-site at every race this season, which is great to see and presumably means that the studio has been dumped for 2015.
