With the riders’ title in the bag, Joan Mir could set a unique piece of MotoGP history today – read on for full details on how to watch all the Portugal GP action online with a MotoGP live stream, no matter where you are in the world right now.
The Spanish rider could potentially become the first to end the season as champ, despite only winning just a single race during the campaign. Despite finishing in seventh during last weekend’s Valencia Grand Prix, the Suzuki star sealed the title after Fabio Quartararo, Maverick Vinales and Alex Rins all failed to reach the podium.
Live stream MotoGP Portugal Grand Prix
The final race of the 2020 season takes place at the Algarve International Circuit and gets going at 2pm local time (WET). That also makes it a 2pm GMT start for fans watching from the UK and an 9am ET / 6am PT flag for those in the US. Get your local MotoGP live stream wherever you are with the help of a VPN.
As well as providing something of a victory lap for Mir, the final race of the season also looks set to see some significant farewells.
The race is set to provide an emotional bookend to Valentino Rossi’s incredible time at Yamaha, with the legendary Italian star swapping places with Fabio Quartararo at Petronas SRT next year.
It’s the end of an era for Cal Crutchlow and Andrea Dovizioso, with neither of two riders set to feature on the MotoGP grid in 2021, with the former set to become Yamaha’s test rider and the latter taking a well-earned year out.
Follow our guide below as we explain how to watch the Portuguese Grand Prix and get a MotoGP live stream from anywhere in the world this week.
How to watch a MotoGP live stream from outside your country
To see how you can live stream the MotoGP action in the UK, Australia (where coverage is free), the US, Canada and New Zealand, read on further down this page to see the broadcast options. But if you want to stream the riding from outside your country, you may find that it’s geo-blocked.
That’s where a VPN can come in really handy. It’s a piece of software readily available to download and install that allows you to simulate the IP address on your laptop (or mobile phone, tablet, streaming device, console, etc) so that it appears to be in a completely different country. Ideal, assuming that it doesn’t breach any Ts&Cs from the broadcaster you’re trying to tune in to.
