The first MotoGP 21 gameplay video has arrived today, featuring the Long Lap Penalty. The penalty is for riders not racing in a fair manner. It was introduced back in early 2019 and now featured in MotoGP 21, as Milestone and Dorna Sports S.L. continue making advances in the series.
The Long Lap Penalty consists of adding several seconds to a lap, running on a route outside of the track, which is seconds slower than the normal racing line. It’s a useful way for the stewards to impose a minor penalty, which might cost the rider a single position.
MotoGP 21 is scheduled to release on April 22 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC.
