MotoGP on TV today – How can I watch qualifying for the Spanish GP?

The 2020 MotoGP will finally get underway with the Spanish Grand Prix at Jerez on July 17-19. Here's how you can watch the qualifying for the season opener in your country.

MotoGP on TV today – How can I watch qualifying for the Spanish GP?

Like Formula 1, MotoGP will begin its new campaign with a double header at the same venue, with Jerez hosting two rounds on consecutive weekends in July.

The Spanish circuit is expected to favour the packages of Yamaha and Suzuki, although it would be naive to rule out Marc Marquez and the factory Honda team, given how successful their partnership has been over the last few years. 

Marquez also topped the opening session during pre-season testing on Wednesday, although his time was lowered by the Yamaha of Maverick Vinales later in the afternoon.

What time does qualifying for the Spanish MotoGP start? 

The opening leg of Spanish GP qualifying (Q1) will begin at 2:10pm local time, while Q2 will start at 2:35pm.

  • Date: Saturday 18th July 2020 
  • Start time: 2:10pm CEST / 1:10pm BST / 8:10am ET / 5:10am PT / 5:40pm IST / 9:10pm JST / 10:10pm AEST
