From Valentino Rossi onwards, many have accepted to challenge each other with the official World Championship video game, first on the Mugello track, then on the Red Bull Ring track.
The fans loved it, making this initiative a success. Today, the third virtual GP has been announced, which will take place on Sunday, May 3rd. During this weekend, the championship would have been racing in Spain, so Jerez was chosen as the stage for this challenge.
What's new for the virtual GP? We won't only be seeing the MotoGP on the track, but also the Moto2 and Moto3. So all classes will be represented in the simulation of a tried and true race weekend.
As for the MotoGP, each team will be able to field one rider, while Honda, with its the world champion, will have two. Instead, the Moto2 and Moto3 will have ten riders, with priority to the Top Ten of the actual classification.
The event will support the Two Wheels for Life association in the fight against the Coronavirus.
