All you need to know to chase the MotoGP™ eSport Championship crown!

The first ever MotoGP™ eSport Championship gets underway as the Official MotoGP™17 videogame is released on Sony PlayStation®4.

You can now have a shot at the world title, just by following just a few simple steps! Most importantly you must create an account on to enrol in the Championship and then go to your profile and link your Playstation™ Network Accound. Once your account is registered and linked, get ready to take part in one – or all – of six exclusive online Qualification Challenges!

If you have a account already, simply sign-in using your existing details via and link your PlayStation™Network Account. 

The Challenges are split in two parts, and first you need to prove your worth through the lower race categories. The Red Bull MotoGP™ Rookies Cup, Moto3™ and Moto2™ classes each require your skills in racing to beat the qualifying times and progress to the next level. Want to skip directly to MotoGP™? Just post an exceptional lap time in a Red Bull MotoGP™ Rookies Cup or Moto3™ race - and get sent straight to the big league.  

Once qualified for the MotoGP™ Challenge - a Time Attack session where you will be free to race on track, without any opponents - you'll have to set the best time possible. You can attempt the Challenge during race week as many times as you like; only your fastest lap will be recorded.

The track for each Qualification Challenge, plus the rider and the bike used by the player, riding options, bike set-up, as well as any other conditions that may be relevant to the track, will be pre-defined to ensure a level-playing field for all participants. Check out the Challenges Calendar to find out more on each event and when you can compete.

The top 2 riders of the first two online Challenges, and the top 3 riders of the last four online Challenges, will be invited to take part in the live Grand Final event, at the Valencia MotoGP™ in November; where they will compete for the 2017 MotoGP™ eSport World Title! Finalists can also enjoy first-hand the curtain closer of the actual 2017 MotoGP™ season with exclusive VIP access.

Put your skills to the test and enrol for ride of a life-time with MotoGP™17 and the MotoGP™ eSports Championship.
