Twin Ring Motegi

Japan will host the first of four MotoGP flyaway races at the Twin Ring Motegi from 23rd-25th September.

  • Japan to host the MotoGP since 2019.
  • Typhoon Nanmadol is expected to hit southernmost part of Japan. 

However, the race could be cancelled just days before the event as the country is bracing for the impact of Typhoon Nanmadol. 

Although the typhoon is due to sweep through Kyushu – the southernmost part of Japan – which far from Motegi but weather forecast suggest it could still affect the country logistics.

Currently, more than four million people have already been evacuated, signalling the level of damages it could do to the area.

Also, Japan has already cancelled the Shinkansen bullet train services.

Nevertheless, Dorna and IRTA is keeping a close eye at the ongoing situation in Japan and any decision will be likely be taken before departures take place.

  • Jorge Lorenzo tidak berpuas hati dengan Johann Zarco.
  • Lorenzo telah mengatakan bahawa Zarco telah bertindak terlampau agresif.
  • Zarco mempertahankan tindakannya itu dengan mengatakan yang ianya hanyalah sebahagian daripada adat perlumbaan.


  • Jorge Lorenzo is upset at Johann Zarco

  • Lorenzo cited Zarco for being too aggressive

  • Zarco defended his move as just racing

Jorge Lorenzo is upset at Johann Zarco’s pass on him in the early stages of the Japanese GP. To the former, the move on him by the triple Moto2 Champion was dangerous, which caused a get-together at the corner exit.

Lorenzo likened Zarco to playing a game on the PlayStation. “You saw what happened,” said Lorenzo. “It’s not the first time he’s done this kind of thing – with me but also with two or three other riders. But he keeps doing it as though he’s playing on the PlayStation on time attack, like there’s no one at the side; very aggressive. I went to his box but he doesn’t understand he’s doing something bad and he won’t change. Someone should tell him to be more calm. He thinks he’s right and doing good, and that you or we need to be careful – not that he has to calm down. I would like to speak with the Safety Commission to see what we can do, because something could happen in future.”

Lorenzo was perhaps pointing to the incident at Austin this year, although it was Valentino Rossi at the receiving end of Zarco’s “aggression.”

“I was confident with the front so in Turn 9 I could attack,” explained the Frenchman. “Then he tried to stay on the outside but when I went out the corner I didn’t see him, I didn’t think he could be there and we touched because of my acceleration I went normally on my line and we touched each other. It was quite a strong touch but it was normal in the race. Because I was on the inside I got the advantage. Nobody crashed is the good thing.”

Zarco had started from pole, his second of the year, but slipped back to finish the race in eighth. Lorenzo struggled with rear grip initially but was able to rally and finish sixth.
