Rossi back on the grid as virtual MotoGP rolls into Misano

This weekend sees the fourth virtual MotoGP since coronavirus reared its ugly head and Valentino Rossi’s home track of Misano is the venue for Sunday’s event.

The riders will be playing on the new official MotoGP™20 Videogame from videogame developer, publisher and longstanding partner Milestone once again – which is available to buy now and actually pretty good.

Eleven MotoGP riders including reigning Champion Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) and nine-time World Champion Valentino Rossi (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) head the billing in the premier class, with MotoE seeing the likes of 2019 FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup winner Matteo Ferrari (Trentino Gresini MotoE) and class newcomer Dominique Aegerter (Intact GP) lining up.

The MotoGP race will be nine laps (35% of race distance) and the MotoE™ race five laps (50% of race distance).
