MotoGP, like F1, has proper TV deals

While MotoGP and F1 sign over 100 TV deals a year, IndyCar is lucky to sign one
While MotoGP and F1 sign over 100 TV deals a year, IndyCar is lucky to have one or two

IndyCar is looking to sign one new TV deal with NBC. One. Talk about totally missing the boat.

Much like Liberty Media and Formula 1, Dorna, the motorcycle racing series' managing body, in 2018 sees an expansion from 91 to 101 broadcasters around the world, and you can bet that all of them liked what they saw on Sunday.

The final laps of the race featured several passes among the top six riders, with the action surrounding Dovizioso, Marquez, and Valentino Rossi heating up as the laps wound down. In the end, it came down to the final corner on the final lap, when cameras struggled to differentiate between the Honda and Ducati riders because they were so close to each other that they looked like one motorcycle.

This is the global TV empire that Bernie Ecclestone built for F1 while IndyCar was, and remains, asleep at the wheel
