MotoGP, like every other sporting competitions, is currently on hold due to the COVID-19.
And like NASCAR, they are filling time with eSports. This past weekend, they held the first ever MotoGP Virtual Race, dubbed the #STAYATHOMEGP.
The kicker: they got stars of MotoGP to compete.
The lineup included: Marc Marquez, Francesco Bagnaia, Alex Marquez, Maverick Vinales, Fabio Quartararo, Alex Rins, Joan Mir, Miguel Oliveria, Iker Lecuona, and Aleix Espargaro.
The opening digital race saw ten riders battle over a six-lap race at Mugello following five-minutes of qualifying.
We won’t spoiler the winner, because, well, this is all we have right now.
