Formed in 1949 by Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme, The Grand Prix Motorcycle Racing tests the capacity of motorcycles on road circuits. Unlike the bikes in Superbike World Championship and the Isle of Man TT Races, these bikes unavailable to the public and they are banned from being ridden on public roads. This is so the bikes ability can be examined to the fullest extent. The championship is divided into MotoGP, Moto2, Moto3, and MotoE. There are 20 riders competing.
