Also, the GoPro brand will be featured trackside throughout the entire 2024 season and beyond, reaching a digital audience of more than 140 million across MotoGP's digital ecosystem and nearly half a billion homes thanks to the sport's global television coverage.

"We're excited to be back at MotoGP and are counting the days until the riders line up on the starting grid for the Gran Premio GoPro de Aragon," said GoPro Vice President of Global Marketing and Communications, Rick Loughery. "We look forward to showcasing MotoGP in new and exciting ways – from delivering thrilling on-board POV to sharing GoPro camera tips and tricks trackside at events – it's all about engaging with fans and enhancing their MotoGP experience."

GoPro is the ultimate motorsports camera with the mounting versatility and ruggedness to capture unique perspectives and impossible angles. GoPro's award-winning HyperSmooth video stabilization and durable, waterproof design deliver immersive motorcycle racing footage, even in the most challenging conditions. And recently, GoPro acquired Sydney, Australia-based Forcite Helmet Systems, a pioneer in embedding technology into helmets, and plans to bring enhanced performance and safety to various types of helmets, starting with motorcycle helmets.
