Brad Binder has gone on to make history in MotoGP by becoming the first South African to win a race; a proudly South African moment that sent cheers across the country.


Brno, Czech Republic (09 August 2020) – History has been made by 24-year-old South African Brad Binder. The rookie in the MotoGP has gone on to become the first South African to win a race at the MotoGP.

The rising star has worked his way through the ranks of Moto3, Moto2 and now proving his best in the MotoGP. Binder is the first South African to race MotoGP in the four-stroke era and the first to compete in the premier class since 2000.

He came in to win from a start at seventh, keeping fans on the edge of their seats as he made daring moves for first. Once he made his way to the front of the race, he pushed forward and put more than four seconds between him and his opponents.

While Brad celebrates his win without his family nearby, South Africans are waving their flags in celebration with the talented racer.

The South African national anthem rang through the Automotodrom in Brno, Czech Republic and it had everyone one who watched, in tears! As South Africans, we are incredibly proud of Brad’s win. We cannot wait to see what he gets up to next!
