Last Sunday, the first MotoGP Virtual Race took place on the Mugello circuit. The riders, who were unable to hold the handlebars of their motorcycles, grabbed their joy pads instead and challenged each other on one of the most iconic tracks of the World Championship. In the end, Alex Marquez won, with Pecco Bagnaia in second place, and Maverick Vinales completing the podium.
Many champions from the premier class participated in the race, such as Marc Marquez, Fabio Quartarato, and the Suzuki duo formed by Rins and Mir, just to name a few.
The experiment was successful, and the second virtual race with the official MotoGP video game was announced for Easter. At 3pm on Sunday April 12th, the riders will get back on their bikes and, this time, they'll face off at the Red Bull Ring, the track that hosts the Austrian Grand Prix.
We still don't know the names of the participants, but they've promised something new, and Andrea Dovizioso and Danilo Petrucci may also race, giving Bagnaia a hand on the Ducatis.
The line-up will be announced in next few days, so all we have to do now is wait.
