Good news for MotoGP fans in Australia. From 2010, all MotoGP races will be broadcast live on the ONE channel owned by Network Ten. The deal covers all classes, which means that 125s, the new Moto2 class and MotoGP races will be shown live on Network Ten's free-to-air 24 hour sports channel. ONE will show all MotoGP races, highlights of the 125 and Moto2 races, as well as qualifying practice. The channel will also broadcast a pre-race show hosted by Greg Rust and former 500cc star Darryl Beattie.
The races will also be shown delayed or simulcast on the network's TEN channel, after Sunday night prime time. The deal came about partly as a result of a resurgence in interest in the class thanks to Casey Stoner's world championship and continued success in the series.
