MotoGP is in Brno this weekend as Yamaha’s Fabio Quartararo looks to extend his lead in the Riders’ Championship with a third straight win. Even in the absence of Marc Marquez – recovering from a second operation on the arm injury he suffered in Jerez’s Spanish GP – the dramatic turns and wildly varying elevation of the Masaryk Circuit will be a big challenge for Quartararo as he looks to prove his title credentials. Don’t miss a single lap with the help of our guide – here’s how to watch today’s Czech Grand Prix and get a MotoGP Brno live stream, wherever you are right now.
MotoGP Brno: Czech Grand Prix 2020
The MotoGP Czech Grand Prix takes place at the Masaryk Circuit in Brno on Sunday, August 9 – starting at 2pm local time (CEST). That makes it a 1pm BST start forfans watching from the UK and an 8am ET flag for those in the US. Qualifying action starts at 2.10pm CEST/1.10pm BST/8.10am ET this Saturday – and you can get your local MotoGP live streaming coverage easily, simply by grabbing a great value VPN.
So far, Yamaha’s flying Frenchman leads the pack – despite it only being his second year competing at the highest level of the sport. He chalked up successive victories in Jerez ahead of the rest week, and now moves on to this weekend’s MotoGP Brno race, where another golden opportunity to take his career to the next level awaits.
As we’ve said, that’s party due to the fact that Sunday’s MotoGP Brno race will be run without defending world champion, Marc Marquez. The sport’s biggest star is currently a doubt to be able to mount a title defence, let alone compete this week, after suffering a major arm injury on a brutal high side crash in the season-opening Spanish GP.
There’s still MotoGP history waiting to be made this weekend, though, as Quartararo’s Yamaha teammate Valentino Rossi could become the first rider to earn 200 podium finishes at the pinnacle of motorcycle racing. With this amount of drama in store, why wait? Read on as we explain how to watch a MotoGP Brno live stream for today’s qualifying action – and Sunday’s Czech Grand Prix itself.

How to watch a MotoGP Brno 2020 live stream from abroad
To see how you can live stream the MotoGP action in the UK, Australia, the US, Canada and New Zealand, read on further down this page to see the broadcast options. But if you want to stream the riding from outside your country, you may find that it’s geo-blocked.
That’s where a VPN can come in really handy. It’s a piece of software readily available to download and install that allows you to simulate the IP address on your laptop (or mobile phone, tablet, streaming device, console, etc) so that it appears to be in a completely different country. Ideal, assuming that it doesn’t breach any Ts&Cs from the broadcaster you’re trying to tune in to.
