PASSION FOR MOTORCYCLE RACING

Dorna is the exclusive commercial and TV rights holder for the leading motorcycle racing championships on the planet.

Founded in 1988, Dorna Sports became organiser of the FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix (MotoGP™) in 1991 and has been the exclusive commercial and television rights holder since 1949. Based in Madrid, Spain, with subsidiaries in Barcelona and Rome, the company is a leader in sports management, marketing and media, and has seen continued growth over the years; expanding its focus from solely MotoGP™ to include other leading motorcycle racing championships across the globe.
The company’s principal shareholders are funds managed by Bridgepoint Capital and The Canadian Pension Plan Investment Board.

Those now include the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship (WorldSBK), the FIM CEV Repsol, the Idemitsu Asia Talent Cup and the Honda British Talent Cup, with the new Northern Talent Cup becoming the latest path on the Road to MotoGP™ in 2020. Dorna has also been co-organiser of the Red Bull MotoGP™ Rookies Cup since its inception in 2007, and in 2019 the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup began, an all-new electric series racing at a number of Grands Prix throughout the season.

At Dorna, we strongly believe in re-investing in motorcycle racing and giving back everything the sport gives us.
