Suzi Perry signs for MotoGP coverage with BT Sport
A familiar face to many GP fans, Suzi has covered the #1 GP series for several years and knows many of the top riders well
BT Sport has signed Suzi Perry to work on a variety of roles on their MotoGP coverage in 2016, according to Charles Sales of the Daily Mail.
Perry hosted MotoGP for 13 years on the BBC before switching to Formula One in 2013.
The BBC handed back their shared Grand Prix rights at the end of last season because of cuts to their budget, and they were picked up by Channel 4.
