MotoGP live stream – How to watch the Japanese Grand Prix at Motegi online

MotoGP is entering the 15th round of the 2017 season, with the world’s best riders heading to Motegi for the Japanese Grand Prix.

The MotoGP 2017 season has been a tightly fought contest so far, with Marc Marquez currently at the top of the standings.

The Repsol Honda rider is 16 points clear of Ducati’s Andrea Dovizioso after the Spaniard’s win last time round at Aragon.

And with just four races left, it’s crunch time for those in the championship battle.

It looks like a three way fight between Marquez, Dovizioso and Yamaha’s Maverick Vinales.

But Vinales will surely need to be in electrifying form, and have results in the rest of the field go his way, to have a chance of claiming a maiden MotoGP title.

Last time out one of the biggest stories was the return of Valentino Rossi.

The Yamaha rider and seven-time MotoGP champion made a staggering comeback just 21 days after breaking his right tibia and fibula during training.

He defied the odds to qualify third, before finishing the race in a hugely impressive fifth position. 

But his time away from the track means an eighth MotoGP title is surely out of his grasp this season.

It looks set to be another dramatic and exciting race in Japan.

So if you want to watch all the action online, here’s’s guide to streaming the big race.
