BROADCAST BOOM: Last season’s championship fight between Spanish riders Marc Márquez and Jorge Lorenzo helped MotoGP draw its largest TV audience in history in Spain, a country with a long motorcycle-racing tradition. The upcoming season will again be broadcast in more than 200 countries. In two of MotoGP's most important TV markets, new broadcasters are set to make their debut this season. BT Sport will replace BBC in the U.K., and Sky Italia will take over Mediaset's spot as the home of MotoGP in Italy. "BT will present its broadcast team in London in mid-February. It's going to be a new era for us," Sagnier said. The '14 season will start with the Qatar Grand Prix on March 23. In addition to the top category, MotoGP, riders will also compete in the Moto2 and Moto3 classes. "So we have plenty of riders, characters and things going on in the new season. We think that the 2014 season is going to be amazing," Sagnier said.
