Event Details

Catch every lap of the stunning MotoGP™ season opener in 2019 at Losail International Circuit in Qatar! One of a kind, the first race of the year kicks off the calendar in stunning, floodlit style.

Truly unique, the season opener is the only event on the calendar under the floodlights and a very special trackside experience: the last oasis of speed under the desert skies.

About the circuit:
The fabulous Losail International Circuit lies on the outskirts of Doha, the capital city of Qatar. Built in little over a year, the track cost $58 million USD and required round-the-clock dedication from almost 1,000 workers in order to get it ready for the inaugural event – the Marlboro Grand Prix of Qatar on the 2nd October 2004.

The track itself is a flowing layout of 5.4 kilometres, surrounded by artificial grass designed to prevent sand from the neighbouring desert from blowing onto the circuit. The main straight is over a kilometre in length and there is a good mix of medium and high-speed corners, including a couple of quick left-handers which has proved particularly popular with the riders.

In 2008 Qatar celebrated the first night time Grand Prix in history, following the construction of permanent outdoor lighting. The switch to night time racing was a success and has continued to be so, with the Qatar event now established as one of the most spectacular on the MotoGP™ calendar.
