Will History be made today, will Rossi be able to outperform others, will Lorenzo be able to retain his championship crown, will…well, we are talking about MotoGP. Today's the season opener and we are sure that most of you will stay glued to the TV screens.
Although the sport has seen a couple of changes in rules, teams and sponsors, it's BMW's partnership with the sport that has stayed the same. So, much like the old days, the German car maker will provide a number of Safety Cars (and bikes) to MotoGP. They've been doing so since the year 1999.
And what does the fleet of safety cars for 2013 include?
Apart from the M6 Gran Coupe (Pace Car) which makes its first appearance this weekend, there will be the M6 Coupe and M5 (Safety Cars), a coupe version of the M3, two M550xd Tourings (Medical Cars) and two HP4 motorcycles (Safety Bikes).
Coming back to MotoGP, who do you think will win today? Time to place some bets!
