ITV will not be showing highlight of the MotoGP this year, after not renewing their contract.

ITV4 have aired a one hour MotoGP highlights package on the Monday evening after a race. The races have been shown live on BT Sport since 2014.

Channel 4 and Channel 5 are likely to be the leading contenders for MotoGP highlights, with both broadcasters increasing their motor sport portfolios recently.

However ITV and ITV4 have recently renewed a deal for a highlights package for the MCE British Superbike Championship races.
