Graphic News

May 18-20, 2018 -- Vijfde ronde van het MotoGP-seizoen 2018, de HJC Helmets Grand Prix de France, op het circiot van Le Mans, Frankrijk.

The 70th Road Racing Championship is organized by the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (F.I.M), which is based in Switzerland and has 112 affiliated National Motorcycle Federations (FMN) over six continents.

Grand Prix motorcycles are purpose-built prototypes that are not available for purchase and can not be driven legally on public roads. They are estimated to be worth about 2 million US dollars each as they can not easily be replaced.

The 2018 Championship includes motorcycles from 6 constructors (Aprilla, Ducati, Honda, KTM, Suzuki and Yamaka) in 12 Teams (Ducati with 4, Honda with 3, Yamaya with 2 and the others with 1 each).

The highest recorded speed for a MotoGP motorcycle is 361 km/h (224 mph), set by Andrea Dovizioso, during the warmup at the 2016 Qatar Grand Prix


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
