TESTIMONIALS

We’ve just done our first commentary together and, for me, it was a real pleasure

Murray Walker

Toby, you have filled me with excitement and anticipation every time I switched on the TV or visited the track to watch MotoGP. Your knowledge is very impressive, but your energy and enthusiasm is unquestionably what makes the race. A true professional.

Allan McNish

I don't know how anyone in the UK will be able to watch a MotoGP race without hearing Toby's voice. I know I will struggle. Toby understands racing and relationships within racing. He always asks smart questions to engineers to then better explain to the viewer how MotoGP works from the inside. I can honestly say the viewer learnt and enjoyed MotoGP more because they listened to Toby.

Andy Priaulx MBE

I’ve had the pleasure of being commented on by Toby for most of my professional career. His ability to say it how it is has won him an army of fans and from my point of view Toby’s dedication to his work his knowledge enthusiasm and accuracy has made him someone that you can rely on to deliver an honest commentary to the viewer. This is so important to me as I need my fans to be reliably informed.

James Toseland

Toby’s racing intelligence, ardent enthusiasm and improvisational wit make Moody a must listen and his events, appointment TV. I consistently find myself educated, entertained and exhilarated by his real time play-by-play which is often as fast and furious as the action he is calling for X Games no matter the discipline.

Michael Allen

Toby and Julian are without doubt the best commentary partnership in the motor sport world. Toby’s knowledge of the sport and his broad contacts and respect across the entire MotoGP paddock give him a unique ‘total picture’ of the racing from every angle. That permits Toby to provide his audience with expert commentary along with his own unique and infectious passion, enthusiasm and excitement.

Lin Jarvis

Toby's understanding of MotoGP, and critically the people who underpin it, has been invaluable to AUTOSPORT's growing coverage of motorcycle racing. His column on the site has a loyal fanbase and rightly so, for his views are incisive, forthright, passionate and always essential reading. "For a long time now considered the voice of MotoGP in the UK, his contribution to motorcycle racing makes him a precious resource for all fans of the sport

Simon Strang

Toby's rider recognition, corner identification and recall of places, dates, etc, is bordering on the supernatural. If you think commentary is about just turning up and talking, I suggest you don't work with Toby. For every hour he spends on the mic, he spends at least two talking to everyone from riders to tyre fitters. Commentating with Toby was always a pleasure. We worked and travelled together for fourteen years yet managed to reman friends

Julian Ryder

As our resident MotoGP expert, Toby is an indispensable part of the autosport.com team. His infectious enthusiasm for motorsport, coupled with a bulging contacts book and the ability to make even the dullest race sound unmissable, makes him one of the most versatile and popular motoring journalists you're ever likely to meet.

Rob Aherne

I don't know how anyone in the UK will be able to watch a MotoGP race without hearing Toby's voice. I know I will struggle. Toby understands racing and relationships within racing. He always asks smart questions to engineers to then better explain to the viewer how MotoGP works from the inside. I can honestly say the viewer learnt and enjoyed MotoGP more because they listened to Toby.

Tom Jojic

It’s very simple for me, if Toby was commentator I watched that channel. His knowledge, enthusiasm and understanding of what the riders and bikes were doing made you feel that you were right there in the race, amazing talent. Very humble, courteous, great fun and always made you feel welcome

Derek Warwick

I met Toby the first time in his very first race in MotoGP: Malaysia 1996. Since then he proved to be the best TV commentator I ever heard. He is professional, enthusiastic and he is able to transfer his passion to the audience. I have no doubt, Toby is “The Voice” of our sport.                                               

Livio Suppo

Toby is one of the true good guys in the MotoGP paddock...my buddies back home loved all the English terms and they always say they want to go out for beers with this guy and get some of his one liners!

Nicky Hayden

I can safely say that anyone in two wheeled racing circles would find difficulty in having to get our seasonal dose of MotoGP without the voice that has become engraved in our sport.

Jeremy McWilliams

I've spent more time over the last eighteen or more years listening to Toby's epic MotoGP commentaries than might be considered healthy, but long may they continue...

John Mockett

I have had the pleasure of working alongside Toby on a number of different projects over the last 10 years, and the experience has really taught me a lot. His work ethic is truly second to none. He's always had an ability when interviewing people to really get the best out of them, in a relaxed style as if you was having a chat with an old pal. Regarding his commentary, what can I say, I could listen to him all day. He has the perfect balance of reading the situation and giving the right amount of information, which I know first hand is easier said than done. A true professional.

Neil Hodgson

The Riders for Health auction at Day of Champions is unique in motorsport and has become the highpoint of the season for thousands of MotoGP fans. The event has raised hundreds-of-thousands of pounds for Riders’ vital work in Africa. This would not have been possible without the contribution of Toby and his tireless work in support of Riders for Health, his knowledge of the sport and the remarkable connection he makes with both riders and fans alike

Andrea Coleman

Anybody who comes into Toby Moody’s orbit is guaranteed an entertaining time. The guy has personality and energy to spare. As half of the famed Eurosport Moto GP reporting team with Julian Ryder, he represents the greatest commentary duo in motorsport history. Funny, outrageous, passionate - and intensely insightful. When he works on his own, Moody remains authoritative and uniquely able to convey his extraordinary knowledge of all areas of motorsport with his inimitable, boundless and engaging enthusiasm. Throw in his passion for competing in hill climb events, and you have one of those outstanding characters who really ‘get’ their sport.

David Tremayne

When it comes to commentators, you cannot put a price on enthusiasm – and when that enthusiasm is matched by a deep and acute knowledge of the subject at hand, the combination is irresistible. Thus, for countless years my enjoyment of MotoGP has been hugely enhanced by Toby Moody, whose obvious love of the sport comes across in every word he speaks.
