Bharat’s 2023 MotoGP: Premier Motorcycle Road Racing Championship Comes to India


The India Grand Prix of the MotoGP is coming up soon. The Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida will host its inaugural MotoGP race this weekend. Fans are anticipated to attend the event, which could help India’s motorcycle racing industry grow. Francesco Bagnaia of Ducati is currently in first place with 283 points in 13 races, five victories, and eight podium finishes. Bagnaia became the first rider to ever overcome a 91-point deficit to win the championship last year, ending a 15-year title drought for the Italian brand.

In the Riders Championship, Bagnaia is ahead of Marco Bezzecchi (218) and Jorge Martin (247).

Here is all the information you need to know about MotoGP before Sunday’s major race at the Buddh International Circuit.


With the addition of a sprint race that happens on Saturday, the riders participate in two extensive free practice sessions on Friday. While the second session might run up to an hour, the first session lasts 45 minutes.

The top ten finishers throughout these two sessions advance directly into Q2. Due to the fact that timings set in FP3 do not count for qualifying, it becomes equivalent to FP4. The ten drivers that have already qualified for Q2 will be joined by the two fastest Q1 drivers.

A rider must have a time that is at least 107% of the fastest driver’s time in order to advance to the main event.


Each Grand Prix in the 21-race MotoGP World Championship lasts between 40 and 45 minutes over a distance of between 100 and 130 kilometres, though this might vary depending on the track.

The first 15 riders receive points after the checkered flag according to the following scale: 25, 20, 15, 13, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

In contrast, the sprint race, which is run over less than half the distance of the Sunday Grand Prix, awards points to the first nine finishers.

Technical guidelines

1000 cc prototype motorcycles are used in the MotoGP World Championship, and each rider is given a set number of tires. Additionally, no bike may have a gasoline capacity greater than 22 liters.
