MotoGP: Dorna awarded with Georges Bertelloti Golden Podium


MotoGP commercial and media rights-holders Dorna Sports were awarded with a coveted Georges Bertelloti Golden Podium at the Sportel convention in Monaco this week.

A video montage featuring the intense battle between MotoGP title candidates Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo, as the young Spaniard attempts to wrestle away the Italian’s World Championship crown, won the award for ‘Best Slow Motion Sequence – Cut/Edited Shot’ category.

The video, entitled “A closer look at the title fight”, was judged to be the best in category by the jury for the Golden Podiums and the award was presented to Dorna representatives at a gala ceremony attended by HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco on Tuesday evening.

Created in 1991 by Georges Bertellotti, the Golden Podium Awards are an international competition which each year showcases the best TV sports images and slow-motion sequences, with the ceremony taking place as part of Sportel Monaco, the International Sports Convention for Television & New Media.
