SHOTOVER partners with Dorna Sports to inject new technology into MotoGP Races

The deal includes a SHOTOVER aerial camera system

SHOTOVER has announced a new partnership with sports management, marketing, and media company, Dorna Sports. The deal includes a SHOTOVER aerial camera system. As the exclusive commercial and television rights holder for the FIM MotoGP World Championship Grand Prix, Dorna will utilize their new system during all live broadcasts of the MotoGP races.


“When it comes to flexibility and performance, there is no comparison to SHOTOVER systems,” said Manel Arroyo, Managing Director at Dorna Sports. “They have truly changed the game in aerial filming by creating a system that is future proof, allowing us to utilize the most sophisticated range of broadcast cameras and new exciting technology as it comes to market. The partnership with SHOTOVER provides a perfect complement to our existing operation and will allow us to push the boundaries for years to come.”


“We are thrilled to partner with Dorna, a company known for being on the cutting edge of technology and innovation, and we look forward to supporting them in their efforts as they continue to set the bar for sports broadcasting across the globe,” said SHOTOVER CEO Brad Hurndell.


The SHOTOVER’s 6-axis stabilization technology comes fully configured and set up from the factory with the customer’s camera and lens of choice, and is equipped with the SHOTOVER rain spinner, a solution for keeping the lens clear when shooting in wet conditions. Utilizing an open platform design that can accommodate new cameras and lenses as they come to market, the SHOTOVER system purchased by Dorna has made it possible for future racing seasons to be broadcast in 4k when the global series shifts from HD to UHD.
