You have to go back to 1949 to visit the start of the motorcycle Grand Prix racing. Harold Daniell would be the first 500cc Grand Prix winner at what has become the world-renowned Isle of Man TT. In this first season, you would find sidecars, 500cc, 350cc, 230cc and 125cc categories.
If we fast-forward to the present, Marc Márquez representing Honda has become a leading force by taking the MotoGP World Championships in six different years. More impressively, he did this under the age of 30. Given his youth, you must assume that time is on his side, allowing him to add to his collection. Perhaps he may go down as one of the greatest of all time. If he wants to match the record-holder Giacomo Agostini, then he’s just two wins away.
The season for MotoGP normally extends from March to November with 19 world events, ranging from the UK’s famous Silverstone track to Italy’s Mugello Circuit. There are even some exotic locations, including Qatar’s Losail International Circuit and Malaysia’s Sepang International Circuit.
The world of motorbike racing is too big to be limited to just MotoGP. If you look into the sport, then you’ll also find World Superbike, Speedway, British Superbike and Motorcross. You can find all these popular sports bets here at Mr Green.
