The grid of the Idemitsu Asia Talent Cup attended an Education and Prevention Workshop provided by MotoGP™ partner Sportradar Integrity services
The training activity for the riders forms part of the agreement signed between the FIM MotoGP™ World Championship and Sportradar Integrity Services at the end of last season, which now oversees MotoGP™, Moto2™ and Moto3™ as part of a wider, multi-year integrity partnership.
Sportradar is a global leader in understanding and leveraging the power of sports data and content, and will be providing a range of integrity services throughout the agreement. The award-winning Fraud Detection System will monitor and analyse betting movements and patterns across all 54 races of the combined MotoGP™, Moto2™ and Moto3™ seasons. In addition, Sportradar will deliver five Education and Prevention Workshops to a wide range of participants and stakeholders, as well as providing an e-learning program for all riders and teams.
Andreas Krannich, Managing Director Integrity Services at Sportradar: “We do speak to sports who feel distant or immune to the problem of fixing. That is not MotoGP’s stance. They have been inquisitive, invested and definitive. They have sought the full suite of our Integrity Services to ensure that no stone is left unturned and that no compromises are made. We look forward to working with them and their stakeholder for the next few years and helping them keep MotoGP an example of best practice in the world of motorsports”.
Carmelo Ezpeleta, Dorna CEO: “Prevention of any problem is always more prudent than cure and for sure betting related sport fixing is a problem. It is a problem that thankfully has not hit our sport but it is one that is causing real concern across other sports worldwide. We do not want to get to the point where we are remedying a problem that has encroached onto motorcycle racing, if we can avoid it by being proactive and resolute. This is what this partnership is about: about education, about deterrence and about defences.”
