Qatar Motor Show 2016 continues to thrill motor enthusiasts of all ages, as fans and families flock to the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center to enjoy the biggest and most exciting annual automotive event in the region. Featuring over 40 international brands from leading luxury, sport and mid-range carmakers, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

On Thursday evening, Motorsport enthusiasts were treated to a surprise guest appearance by Mohamed Abu Issa, the Qatari quad bike legend, who thrilled fans with an impromptu stunt display at the show’s fan zone. The outdoor Fanzone completes visitors’ experience with daily motorbike stunts and displays from Red Bull athletes, Shadi Al Dhaheri and Brian Capper, as well as test drive opportunities.

A late, but very popular, addition to the show is the quintessential vehicle from Rolls Royce, the Phantom. The Phantom joins the Wraith and the new Rolls Royce Dawn, which was unveiled at the opening of Qatar Motor Show 2016.

There is also plenty for motorbike enthusiasts to enjoy, with international brands such as Harley Davidson, Ducati, Triumph and KTM on display. Fresh from the Motorbike Expo in Verona, Performance Technology joins QMS 2016 as a special guest exhibitor. With a background in motorsport, Performance Technology are the brains behind the Sport Production 300 Turbo supercharge for bikes, which allows increased engine efficiency without the need for mechanical modification. The team behind the Turbo includes FIM 250 world champion and Grand Prix motorcycle road racer, Mario Lega.

On Friday motorbike fans were also treated a special parade of Harley Davidson bikes as over 80 Harley Davidson motorbikes rumbled through the streets of Doha. Organized by the Qatar Chapter of the Harley Owners Group (HOG) and Ladies of Harley, the Harley Davidson parade was one in a series of daily parades taking place around West Bay throughout the duration of the show. Members from Harley Owners Group also hosted games in the Fanzone for visitors to win goody bags.
