Scheduling: The 2017 Valencian MotoGP / Brazilian Grand Prix

Two riders. One championship. Marc Marquez. Andrea Dovizioso. One of them will become 2017 MotoGP World Champion in Valencia.

As always, the MotoGP weekend will air exclusively live on BT Sport, with highlights in a Monday evening time slot on Channel 5. Suzi Perry is back fronting BT Sport’s coverage alongside the likes of Gavin Emmett and Neil Hodgson; Keith Huewen and Julian Ryder will be on commentary.

The race is significant from a broadcasting perspective as it will mark Nick Harris’ last race commentating on Dorna’s MotoGP World Feed, having been involved in the motoring world for 36 years! His successor from 2018 onwards has yet to be announced.

Elsewhere, the Formula 1 season is not quite over, with the penultimate round of the championship in Brazil airing exclusively live on Sky Sports F1. Following Channel 4’s highlights programme is 1: Life on the Limit, which follows Formula 1’s pursuit for safety over the years. It is the first time that the film has aired on Channel 4, with various airings on ITV4 in the past year and a half.

Due to international football, the BBC’s coverage from Brazil is on Radio 5 Live Sports Extra for the complete weekend.
