2018 Australia MotoGP Live Stream and Phillip Isle Free to Air TV Replay


Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix live TV timesThe 2018 MotoGp season is winding down to its conclusion with the championship heading to Australia and Phillip Island for the 17th round of action. Marc Marquez wrapped up his fourth world title in Japan last round, while Valentino Rossi will attempt to hold off Andrea Dovizioso for second in the standings, and you won‘t miss a minute of the excitement when watching at home or streaming the sessions live to a mobile device.

2018 Australian MotoGP Preview

The Australian MotoGP is the sixteenth round of the season for riders, staged at Phillip Island. The event has been there since 1997, with Italian legend Valentino Rossi and Australian Casey Stoner holding the record of six wins, the latest in 2014 and 2012 respectively. The track itself can be quite unforgiving, particularly at turn nine, ‘Lukey Heights’. Make the slightest of errors and it’s race over.

Marc Marquez holds the title lead and has wrapped up the Rider’s Championship for the fifth time, his third consecutive, after winning the Japanese Motorcycle Grand Prix with a clutch come-from-behind performance. The Spanish rider has had a remarkably consistent championship run, winning nine of the sixteen events so far on the calendar. He once again found his form at Aragon, continued his dominance in Thailand and went onto Japan to repeat the dose. His record at Phillip Island has been one of extremes, winning two of the past four (2015, 2017) while also failing to finish the other two years (2014, 2016).

The obvious threat has to be Valentino Rossi. He holds the record at Phillip Island for most wins at Grand Prix level and comes back to Australia in pretty good form. He was qualified well for the 2018 Japanese MotoGP but failed to finish in the top three, settling for a fourth  but fortunately Andrea Dovizioso has an off day and lost ground when coming in at eighteenth, his worst performance of the season so he will be motivated for sure.
