MotoGP 2021 - fans return to Silverstone

… and it will be our last chance to see Valentino Rossi in action!

When and where is MotoGP 2021 taking place?
After a two-year wait due to Covid-19 restrictions MotoGP fans will return to Silverstone for the British round of the MotoGP world championship, the most prestigious two-wheeled series of all – and it promises to be more than worth the wait.
Taking place at the iconic Northamptonshire circuit in the heart of England over the Bank Holiday weekend of August 27-29, the event is allowing fans back for the first time since 2019 and promises not only breath-taking two-wheeled action but a host of other attractions and activities. Whether you go for the whole long weekend (free practice for all classes along with the British Talent Cup takes place on Friday, qualifying on Saturday and after morning warm-up, the first Moto3 race is at 11.20am Sunday) or just race day, it’s an event no Brit biker can afford to miss.
What can I expect at MotoGP 2021?
On track, eight-time world champion Marc Marquez is back to his best after missing 2020 through injury – will the Honda star win again at Silverstone?
We’ll also be able to see for ourselves if 2020’s dominant Suzukis – who shocked the racing world with their first world championship for 20 years – can repeat last year’s peerless form. But the biggest racing story of all – although sadly one unlikely to result in a race win – is that of MotoGP veteran and arguably ‘GOAT’, nine-times world champion (and seven in the premier class) Valentino Rossi. Now 42, struggling this year in the midfield on his satellite Petronas Yamaha and without a race win since 2017, the Italian has announced his retirement at the end of this year making Silverstone your last opportunity to see the great man in action. But if Rossi is one sad reason to go to this year’s Silverstone MotoGP, there’s plenty of thrilling ones, too. Away from MotoGP, Brits Jake Dixon and Sam Lowes will be competing at the very front of the Moto2 race on bikes powered by Britain’s own Triumph. There’s also a Moto3 round and British Talent Cup on track, too.
