2020 MotoGP Catalan Grand Prix: Start time

The 2020 MotoGP Catalan Grand Prix starts at 9 a.m. ET (6 a.m. PT | 2 p.m. BST) today, though race coverage on NBCSN is tape delayed until 4:30 p.m. ET. Qualifying took place 8 a.m. ET on Saturday.

What can you say about the 2020 MotoGP season that hasn't already been said? The first seven races have been absolutely epic, and if you haven't tuned in yet, you'll certainly want to make the effort to fire up a MotoGP live stream today.

The destination? The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya for the Catalan Grand Prix. We enter the weekend having congratulated six winners across the season's seven races. The top four in the riders standings — Andrea Dovizioso, Fabio Quartararo, Maverick Viñales and Joan Mir — are separated by all of four points. And after a drama-filled Emilia Romagna Grand Prix last weekend, where Francesco Bagnaia threw away his race lead with seven laps left to go to hand Viñales the victory, it's very possible we'll see yet another different winner today at Catalunya.

Read on to learn everything you need to know to follow the MotoGP Catalan Grand Prix. The race itself begins today at 9 a.m. ET. Scroll down to the bottom for full qualifying results, which will form the grid order for the main event.
