Hello, and welcome to MotOPPO GP, the world’s foremost Kinja-based Grand Prix motorcycle racing fantasy game, and good news: It’s not a failure anymore!


Last week...

PARTY TIME!!! We got enough players to finally make this a good game. Lots of riders went kaput, and in the end, the Marquez, the Lorenzo, and the Iaccoca won the race.


Up next...

We’re going to Jorge Country, whose ruler governs with a special glove, wears a cool helmet, and may have just kicked Dovi off his spot at Ducati Corse. But eh, he’s still in Yamaha this year, and if he wins this one he’d just shrug it off. Doesn’t matter, because it’d still be interesting to see just how much more Suzuki can gain, and if Ducati can finally break 3rd and into the top, at least just to appease Emperor-President Jorge.
