The third instalment of our special in-depth series is devoted to one of the most talented riders ever to grace the MotoGP grid: Casey Stoner.

Host Toby Moody is joined by renowned MotoGP engineer Tom Jojic and The Race’s MotoGP correspondent Simon Patterson to discuss Stoner’s incredible impact in MotoGP, from his quick but erratic debut season in the top class in 2006 with Honda, to his phenomenal championship run with Ducati in 2007, and beyond.

Along the way, Toby and Tom provide stories and insights from their days rubbing shoulders with Stoner in the paddock, including recollections of watching his astonishing speed trackside, and what it was like when he announced his shock retirement.

Amongst the myriad stories and excellent anecdotes, Simon also explains the role Stoner played in Pecco Bagnaia’s 2022 title success with Ducati.

Plus there’s a special drop-in chat with Livio Suppo, the man who signed Stoner to Ducati and then worked with him again at Honda, where the Australian secured a second world championship crown in 2011.
