Dorna Sports, manager of global motorcycling series MotoGP, has announced the launch of a new docuseries on Amazon Prime Video.

Filmed across the 2021 season, the docuseries will take a behind-the-scenes look at MotoGP, covering everything from team meetings to the sporting and personal side of the championship.

The series, produced by Spanish media giant Mediapro in collaboration with Dorna Sports, will run across eight 50-minute episodes. It has also been confirmed that big name riders such as Valentino Rossi, Marc Marquez, Fabio Quartararo and Joan Mir will all feature in the production.

The docuseries will premiere initially on Amazon's Prime Video streaming platform in France Italy and Spain, three of MotoGP's key markets. Then, in 2022, the series will be released in over 150 territories, including the UK and the US.

Dorna Sports and MotoGP will be hoping that the docuseries will have a similar effect to Netflix's 'Drive to Survive', which documents the Formula One paddock and has been hugely successful for the championship in reaching new fans.

"The close collaboration between all parties, and this project with Mediapro and Prime Video, more than ensures that it will be a success," said Manel Arroyo, chief commercial officer at Dorna Sports.

"During this intense season, which ended in Valencia, the work between Dorna and the Mediapro Studio has been constant, with the idea of extracting the best and most outstanding moments of each Grand Prix of the season.

"The help of the six manufacturers, the teams and the riders will help us see and enjoy so many things that, until now, have remained behind closed doors, creating a product that will live up to the impressive quality and experience of their previous productions and documentaries."
