2020 MotoGP Emilia Romagna Grand Prix: Start time

The 2020 MotoGP Emilia Romagna Grand Prix starts at 8 a.m. ET (5 a.m. PT | 1 p.m. BST) on Sunday, September 20. Coverage on NBCSN kicks off live at 7:30 a.m. Qualifying began at the same time as the race on Saturday.

Is it possible for the 2020 MotoGP season to get any closer or more exciting than it's already been? In six races, we've already seen five winners. It's quite possible we'll add another to that list this weekend, as MotoGP returns to the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, the second of two back-to-back races at the Italian track. Here we've got everything you need to know to help you set up a MotoGP live stream and follow every session.

Franco Morbidelli led every lap of last weekend's San Marino Grand Prix, not putting a foot wrong once, and never looking back. The scrap for the other two podium spots, however, was far more dramatic, with Francesco Bagnaia, Joan Mir, Valentino Rossi and Alex Rins locked in a battle that lasted until the final lap — and the final corners — of the race.

Rossi ultimately couldn't hold on to secure his 200th podium on home soil, thanks to a brilliant late-race charge from Mir to capture third. Thankfully, The Doctor will have another opportunity during round two of "La Doppio."

Read on for everything you need to know to catch this weekend's MotoGP Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, which is set to kick off on Sunday, Sept. 20 at 8 a.m. ET. If you'd like to see the full qualifying results from Saturday, you can find them at the bottom of this page.
