The 2020 edition of the MotoGP racing game app is now available for download.
The 2020 MotoGP Fan World Championship season kicked off on the 22nd of June, with the release of the official MotoGP Racing game app on the Apple AppStore and Google Play Store. New for 2020 is a title sponsor of the Fan World Championship, WINDTRE. Brembo now continues as the championship’s trophy sponsor. Nolan Group also maintains its status as the major award sponsor by providing limited edition MotoGP helmet to the winners.
Now in its fifth consecutive season, the series has captured the attention of over 30 million fans worldwide. Champions come from across the globe in the USA, UK, Malaysia and Indonesia. The Fan World Championship is unique in sports in that the riders in the actual MotoGP championship take the form of millions of fans around the world. Each one would race for their favourite rider. With every race and every point, they score, they contribute to the success of their on-track heroes. The MotoGP rider with the highest average fan score is crowned the Fan World Champion. The fan who made the highest point contribution to that rider takes to the top step of the podium.
The 2019 series saw Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) and his number one fan, Feri Kurniawan of Indonesia, taking victory. Taking the second step was Valentino Rossi (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) and his number one fan Mohamad Bilal of India. In third place was Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda Castrol) and his fan Yunita Rahma of Indonesia.
Graeme Warring, Race Director of the MotoGP™ Fan World Championship
“The popularity of MotoGP around the world continues to amaze me. The amount of time and effort these fans put into the series is incredible. They score billions of points over hundreds of hours. The emergence of India as a major market for the App caught us by surprise in 2019. Indonesia and European countries have traditionally dominated the series. I guess it should come as no surprise given the popularity and reliance on motorcycles in India.”
Pau Serracanta, Managing Director of Dorna Sports
“The game puts the adrenaline of feeling like a real rider into the palm of all our fans’ hands. WINDTRE’s involvement with MotoGP is another sign of how important it is for sponsors to be part of activities or projects that have such incredible levels of fan engagement. This is much like the MotoGP Fan World Championship.”
The involvement of WINDTRE in the series as title sponsor will also pay off for fans. The tournaments which operate in the App now include even more elaborate rewards, such as Android phones, limited-edition motorcycle helmets produced exclusively by Nolan, merchandise from the MotoGP™ online store and VideoPass season subscriptions. Prizes also include exclusive Brembo and Michelin t-shirts and passes to races.
