The Pearl-Qatar UIM Powerboat Grand Prix will be held from 15th to 17th March, 2012, in the waters just off The Pearl-Qatar Marina.

The race, which is sponsored by The Pearl-Qatar and organised by the Qatar Marine Sports Federation will start and end at The Pearl-Qatar Marina, one of the finest and largest marinas in the Middle East. HE Sheikh Hassan bin Jabor Al Thani, President of Qatar Marine Sports Federation (QMSF) and driver of Spirit of Qatar 96 said everyone involved will benefit from The Pearl-Qatar’s first-class facilities. ‘This year’s Class 1 racing series looks set to be the most competitive in many years and is sure to draw a large number of spectators to the facility.’

Spectators will be able to watch the race on big screens inside the first class restaurants and cafes and there will be a boat service for spectators so they can get close to all the boats docked in the marina.
