Become A Site Supporter: Take Out A Subscription!

SKU: annual-subscription's mission is to provide the best possible coverage of MotoGP and World Superbikes: the best reporting, the best background reports, the most in-depth analysis, the most stunning photos. But bringing you this level of coverage simply can't be done without your support. We need your help.

For just $40 dollars a year, you can support us in our coverage of motorcycle racing. Your money helps send David Emmett, Scott Jones and the rest of the staff to the races, where they can bring you the in-depth reporting and beautiful photography you come to for. Although none of the site is behind a paywall, site supporters also have access to a different layout, with more room for the stories, larger photos and completely ad-free, as shown below. Even better, becoming a site supporter will also gain you access to much larger size versions of the photos that Scott shoots. Site supporters get hi-res desktop-sized photos, rather than the smaller 800x600 that ordinary users see (for a sample, see this photo). Site supporters also get a nifty badge next to their name when posting comments on the Site Supporter Badge

In addition, site supporters with a subscription will be offered 50% discounts on site merchandise such as the annual Motorcycle Racing Calendar and our T-shirts, with more merchandise to come.

Help make the best motorcycle racing website on the internet, and join our growing legion of site supporters: take out a subscription today!

Thanks, that's a good point. There should already be a reminder email sent out a couple of weeks before the subscription is due to expire. I have added another email when the role does expire. Hopefully, this should help. 

Much more information coming on the crowdfunding in the next few days. Setting it all up now.

David, I refuse to use Paypal for any transactions, its a personal thing, I just do not like them. I can only do that from Holland, other countries force you to sign up for Paypal, in Holland I only have maestro card, so I cannot sign up. I have cards from several countries but the address is not in Holland so it will not run through. How can I sign up, or can I pay and become a supporter by donating a similar amount via your crowd funding page, which does not use Paypal? Thanks

David, like all the others here I love the simplicity of the site (as well as the content) but honestly, you might want to think about tidying up the shopping side of things for your own benefit! It just needs the normal 'Shop' button and a 'Cart/Basket' button so that us numties can get the business done in two ticks without wandering around like lost children.

Hi David
Finally put my hand in my wallet as I love your work.

However, Im not yet seeing the bigger pics as a subscriber ?

First of all, thanks for subscribing, the Site Supporters are the lifeblood of the site.

The bigger pics are in separate articles. You should now see two articles instead of one, one with the standard size pics, and one with Subscriber Desktops in the title.

Dear David,
I finally did it! It isn't really the best time for me to spend money (... the AUD isn't doing great too), and this is really the saddest period since when I'm in to motorbike races, but the entertainment I get from motomatters is priceless.
Looking forward to great readings on 2016 championship!

Few can persuade me to raid my pension and pay for something I can actually get for free, but MotoMatters has the best bike racing content anywhere on the web. Well done - proud to be a 'supporter'.

The Site Supporters are what keep this site running. Without them, we would be in a sizable financial hole, and I would have to spend more time writing magazine articles. That, in turn, would mean less time for content on the site. 

So thanks to you, and thanks to everyone who contributes, donates, or supports in another way. Hugely appreciated.

Procrastination is a terrible thing, but not as terrible as not doing the right thing...and supporting this fabulous site (finally) is definitely the right thing to do.  Being a site supporter is an honor, and MotoGP IS better because of what you do.  Thank you and keep up the excellent work!

Very good question. Subscriptions are for 12 months from the date of purchase. If you renew a subscription before the expiry date, it extends for another 12 months from the date it would have expired on. 

For example: Take out a subscription on 8th December 2016, it will expire on 8th December 2017. Renew that subscription on 21st November 2017, and the renewed subscription will expire on 8th December 2018. 

Love your work! 


Hi David, finally subscribed!

I am unable to recall exactly when but pretty sure that it was early days of motogpmatters before site changed to motomatter at some point when I find your site so...this is really late subscription but looking forward to read and support your site for next decades!


Thought I *was* a subscriber. Checking to see if the Site Supporter flag appears ...

After loitering around this site for nearly 2 years now...I've finally gotten my act together and subscribed.   Thanks David for the commentaries and Scott for the wonderful pictures.   As MGP moves it's website closer and closer to a social media platform with the agenda of continued shortening of user attention spans....Motomatters has been a haven for the true race fan.  Keep it up.
