The Grand Prix of Qatar is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular events on the MotoGP™ calendar. The action here takes place at night under the floodlights of the brilliant Lusail International Circuit, which sits around 30km outside Doha - the exciting and evolving capital city of Qatar.
Located in the Qatari desert, the Lusail circuit held its first event at the venue with the October 2004 Grand Prix of Qatar, won by Sete Gibernau. In 2008 Qatar celebrated the first floodlit Grand Prix in the history of the MotoGP™ World Championship and since 2007 Qatar has also hosted the season-opening race on the GP calendar.
The track itself is a flowing layout of 5.4 kilometers, surrounded by artificial grass designed to prevent sand from the neighboring desert from blowing onto the circuit. The main straight is over a kilometer 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.
Lusail Circuit Sports Club (LCSC) announced the release of tickets for the Qatar Grand Prix, the opening round of the MotoGP World Championship 2022 season, which will be held over three days of March 2022, noting that fans who have received full doses of the coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccine will be able to reserve their seats for race days through the club's website.
The event will also align with Qatar National Vision 2030s sustainability agenda, meaning that each phase will be optimized to be held in the most feasibly sustainable and environmentally-friendly way possible.
