Moto2 & Moto3 2018 Official Review DVD

The latest crop of young talent on two wheels made their mark in 2018 as potential long-term successors to the likes of Marc Marquez lit up MotoGP's feeder championships, Moto2 and Moto3

Moto2 & Moto3 2018 Official Review DVD

In this DVD from Duke Video all 18 rounds of the intense secondary and tertiary categories are covered in depth, from Qatar through Valencia, full of frenetic action and frantic close-quarter battles.

In Moto2 Francesco Bagnaia, who entered the year already contracted to the Pramac MotoGP team, rose above the rest to seal honours in a season where several of his opponents also excelled.

Miguel Oliveira led the charge as he and team-mate Brad Binder emphasised KTM's progress with a series of fine displays while Alex Marquez, Lorenzo Baldassarri and star rookie Joan Mir all had their moments in the sun.

In Moto3 it seemed to be win-or-bust for Jorge Martin at stages but the irrepressible Spaniard ultimately steered clear of his opponents to take the mantle of champion, fending off a throng of Italians led by Marco Bezzecchi and Fabio Di Giannantonio, who ensured the wins were split between manufacturers Honda and KTM.

Each of the 18 rounds in each category is covered, with Moto2 followed by Moto3 at the respective event, with an array of camera angles and onboards as used in the world feed capturing all of the action and the crucial developments in each race and through the story of the championship.

As-live commentary and analysis from MotoGP's experts add to the narrative while on-screen graphics provide a pointer as to the development of riders through the campaign.

The four-hour review is split over two DVDs, with bonus extras coming in the form of reflective interviews with respective champions Bagnaia and Martin.

Moto2 & Moto3 2018 Official Review DVD is available from Duke Video for £14.99 | Product Code 1828
