And so perhaps this is no great surprise.

And nice touches like rotating the iPhone into ‘horizontal’ position to get a full live timing view, and live commentary from the MotoGP crew as well.The app also provides access to race results, championship results, latest news, rider profiles, competition calendars and schedules, and a huge photo […]
