New Amazon Fly-On-The-Wall Series
Eight, 50-minute programmes will show teams and riders, warts and all

The recent two seasons of Netflix’s Formula 1 fly-on-the-wall documentary series proved that you didn’t have to be a fan of motor racing to find what goes on behind the scenes fascinating.

Now, Amazon Prime has announced that it will be airing eight, 50-minute episodes of the same kind of thing, only this time concentrating on the MotoGP paddock. And all we can say is: it’s about time!

With the camera crews being given unprecedented access to the pits and paddock at each MotoGP round, this promises to be a real insight into the intimate details of the teams and stars of MotoGP. What will make the series even more poignant is that it will capture the final season of Valentino Rossi, arguably the greatest and certainly the most popular racer of all time.

All The Drama
2021 was an incredible season: now we’ll get the full story

As with the Netflix series, cameras will follow closely the antics of riders, team managers and teams not only in the pits at the races but also away from the track in their personal lives. We are promised an intimate glimpse into the lives of riders.

Filmed by the MediaPro Studio, CEO Laura Fernández Espeso says:

"The collaboration with Dorna and the support of Amazon Prime Video have been decisive to launch this series.

"We believe it will appeal not only to motorcycling fans, but to all viewers interested in a good story. In this case one of triumph and sacrifice in both sporting and personal terms, which we are making thanks to the unique access that, for the first time, the protagonists of the championship have given to our production team”.

Unprecedented Access
Access into the pits and the private lives of the riders

Manuel Arroyo, Dorna commercial director, said:

“The close collaboration between all parties and this project with Mediapro and Prime Video will allow its success.

“Throughout this intense season, that we ended the past weekend in Valencia, the work between Dorna and the Mediapro Studios has been constant with the idea of extracting the best and most outstanding moments of each Grand Prix of the calendar.

"The support provided by the six manufacturers, the teams and the pilots will help us unveil things that had never been seen before and to create a product that is up to the quality and experience that we have seen in their previous documentaries”.

We can expect to see the show sometime during 2022. Frankly, we can’t wait!
