How to watch the tests on TV and streaming
Good morning friends of OA Sport and welcome to the LIVE LIVE of the first day of winter testing in preparation for the 2024 MotoGP World Championship. Having closed the 2023 season last Sunday, we return to the track today at the Ricardo Tormo in Valencia to begin the long journey towards the next MotoGP, which will start in Lusail on the weekend of 8-10 March with the Qatar GP.
Ducati remains the technical point of reference on the grid after the dominance shown this year and will also be able to count on one more Marc Marquez. The eight-time world champion will in fact be the truly great special observer of the day in Valencia, to understand his first approach astride the Desmosedici GP23 of Team Gresini after eleven consecutive seasons with Honda in the top class.
The Borgo Panigale company will try to collect important data for the development of the new bike with the officials Francesco Bagnaia and Enea Bastianini, but the Pramac riders Jorge Martin and the newcomer Franco Morbidelli, who has given up the his place in Yamaha to the Spaniard Alex Rins (Fabio Quartararo’s new teammate).
First outing with a new team also for the Frenchman Johann Zarco with LCR and for the Italians Luca Marini and Fabio Di Giannantonio, respectively with the official Repsol Honda team and with the Ducati of Team Mooney VR46. All eyes are also on the only rookie of the premier class in 2024: the super Iberian talent Pedro Acosta, already a two-time world champion and ready to get on the KTM of the GasGas Tech 3 team.
Appointment set at 10.00 am for the start of today’s track activity, which will end in the late afternoon at 5.00 pm. OA Sport offers you LIVE textual LIVE full coverage of the event with constant updates in real time so you don’t miss a moment of the MotoGP tests in Valencia ahead of 2024: have fun!
