MotoGP Japan: TV Guide

Rossi leads the championship

MotoGP is in Japan this weekend for the first of three back-to-back flyaways, which unfortunately means the early starts for the hardcore of you thinking about watching live but it'll surely be worth it. 

The championship battle is only just getting started with Valentino Rossi leading Jorge Lorenzo by 14 points. Lorenzo has said he isn't phased by the shoulder he sprained on a minibike earlier this week, so we could be treated to a re-match of the battle between the Yamaha duo at Motegi five years ago. 

The weekend also marks Danny Kent's first opportunity to clinch the Moto3 crown. Should he leave Japan 75 points ahead of Enea Bastianini he'll take the title. It's a big ask, as it'd mean the Brit taking 20 points over the Italian rider but it's possible nonetheless.
