2024 continues the new-for-2023 format which saw the introduction of the Saturday Sprint Race. Joining the ranks for WSBK and F1, MotoGP introduced the Sprint Race to both reinvigorate interest in the sport after a drop in viewing figures, but also to offer better value to fans, offering two days of fast paced action. Sprint races will be run over half the respective race distance and points will be awarded to the top nine riders only, with 12 points for a win, 9 for second and 7 for third. The remaining places will be awarded 6,5,4,3,2 and 1 point respectively. With points for the Sunday race being unchanged, this gives a total of 777 points on offer over the season. 

 

What TV channels will MotoGP be on this year?

TV coverage may vary from race to race, but generally, live coverage will be shown on BTSport/TNTSPORTS, who have secured TV rights until the end of 2024.

TNTSPORTS2 is the new name for BTSports2 and can be found on BT Channel 409, SKY Channel 411 and on Virgin Channel 528 (Subscription required).

We'll update this page with all the TV schedules for each round, so keep coming back to make sure you don't miss any of the action.

What's new for the 2024 MotoGP Season?

After last seasons format changes, it's a more stable year in 2024 with only minor tweaks to the rulebook. Fuels used by the teams must be a minimum of 40% from non-fossil origin (this will increase to 100% in 2027), and there are a few more exceptions to the minimum age limits to allow for some of the more talented riders to climb the classes a little quicker.  

While there may not be any major changes to the MotoGP format for 2024, there have been some major shake ups in the teams with many of the top riders looking for new opportunities:

Marc Marquez - Honda to Ducati

If you didn't know about this, then you must have been living under a rock for the last few months. Moving from a works Honda team to a satellite team is a massive move for Marquez and gives some indication of how unhappy he has been at Honda. Gresini Ducati have welcomed him with open arms and end of season testing showed that the pairing will be competitive right from the off. 

Alex Rins - Honda to Yamaha

His third move in three years, Alex Rins leaves Castrol Honda LCR after an injury prone season and joins Fabio Quartararo at Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Team. 

Franco Morbidelli  - Yamaha to Ducati

As Rins joins Yamaha, Franco leaves to make way for him. Despite his late season form, Morbidelli had a disappointing season with Yamaha and is hoping that a switch to Prima Pramac Racing, as teammate to Jorge Martin, will see a change of fortune and a return to his 2020 form.

Luca Marini - Ducati to Honda

It's not everyday you get offered a works Honda seat and, despite their recent form, it was an offer that Luca Marini has grabbed with both hands. He's got some big shows to fill following the departure of Marc Marquez, and only time will tell  if Honda can get their development back on course. All eyes will be on the pairing at the first tests of the season for some early indications of how well they work together.

Johann Zarco - Ducati to Honda

Taking over from Rins at Castrol Honda LCR, the Frenchman will bring his wealth of experience to the Honda garage to help with development and new parts. That's not to say that Zarco won't be fighting for the win - his grit and determination are (in)famous among his rivals.

Fabio Di Giannantonio - Ducati to Ducati

No change in manufacturer, but Digi's seat at Gresini Ducati was always in danger amid the rumours of Marquez's departure from Honda. Marini's move opened a seat at Mooney VR46 Racing (rebranded for 2024 as Pertamina Enduro VR46 MotoGP Team) and if his late season performance is anything to go by, we'll be seeing a lot more of Digi in 2024.
