Only Dorna can assign any radio and/or TV a Commentary Booth. No live commentary is allowed from the Media Centre. Only Dorna can allow radio stations to use their mobile unit at the Circuit. This must be authorized by Dorna 1 month before the Event. If a radio station wishes to bring its own broadcast unit to the Circuit, then a written request must be sent to Dorna Commercial Media Department.
The request must specify details of the programme and size of the broadcast unit.
Any website, blog, portal or any other kind of online media wishing to cover the events from onsite must reach an agreement with Dorna Commercial Media Department. Due to the exclusivity of the video rights of MotoGP™ for broadcast/display on the Internet, websites granted credentials are not allowed to record and/or display any footage from the event nor post any audio clips. This applies not only to track footage but also to any/all footage taken at the Circuits during the event.
All requests for TV accreditation for journalists or camera crew (international or national) must contact directly to the Dorna Commercial Media Department at firstname.lastname@example.org
There is an extremely restrictive policy of camera access to the Circuit due to the exclusivity of the TV rights and other current agreements and for security reasons. Due to this fact, any television or production company wanting to enter the Circuit during event with their own camera will have to contact the Dorna Commercial Media Department directly, email@example.com.
No TV cameras are allowed to enter the Circuit starting from Saturday morning until Tuesday midnight.
In the case of a regional-local television belonging to the National Rights Holder, its request must be sent through the National Rights Holder.
Online/Web Magazines and Online/Web Newspapers are considered publications, whether they are available separately and/or as an online version of a printed periodical.
Only publications with high standards of professionalism and accuracy in their reporting may seek accreditation.
People under 18 years of age cannot be accredited.
