The world of MotoGP is a fast and exciting one, with riders competing each year, for the title of World Champion. A thrilling 2011 finale saw Casey Stoner take the lead on his Repsol Honda machine in the damp weather of Valencia. He marked the history, as he and became the last MotoGP World Champion of the 800cc era.
MotoGP is enjoying incredible success, with attendance rising at every event and television coverage more popular than ever. In the USA, where two races are held, at Laguna Seca in California and Indianapolis, audiences are also taking notice.
That's great news for Tissot, the Official Timekeeper and the Official Watch of MotoGP. The Tissot brand is very visible at every track as well as during the TV coverage, whenever the time or statistics are shown.
The timing operation for each of the MotoGP tracks, spread throughout the world, is incredible. Traveling in a caravan of tractor trailers, Tissot's timekeeping experts set up each track with sensors, receivers and cameras at each different venue.
Tissot continues as the presenter of the Tissot Pole Position Awards, where the rider who secures the coveted spot at every race is gifted a special Tissot timepiece.
