Thrilling night racing kicks off in March at the famous Losail International Circuit, which lies on the outskirts of Doha, and is the host to the 2018 Qatar MotoGP.
Like much else in the region, the track was built in little over a year and opened to great acclaim in 2004 when it hosted the very first Qatar Grand Prix. In 2008 the venue celebrated the first floodlit Grand Prix in the history of the World Championship, and has since 2007, hosted the first race of the MotoGP season.
The track is a flowing 5.4 kilometres in length, with the longest straight measuring a whopping 1 068 metres. The entire circuit is surrounded by artificial grass to prevent the Qatari desert sand from blowing onto the track. During March, when the Qatar MotoGP takes place, the weather reaches an average daily maximum of 26°C, but the cooler evenings mean you need to pack appropriately.
Doha is the capital city of Qatar, which forms part of the larger Arabian Peninsula and is fast becoming one of the most exciting destinations in the Middle Eastern region. Your MotoGP Qatar 2018 package includes some time in this exciting city, where you can enjoy visits to the Museum of Islamic Art, watch camels race across the desert or spend some time sampling the exceptional cuisine in one of the city’s restaurants. Get your MotoGP Qatar tickets together with your accommodation, or upgrade your package to include flights, transfers, a tour leader and even special VIP treatment.
