I congratulate LCSC for organising yet another memorable event and welcoming residents and visitors to enjoy the races and live musical performances.

Qatar Tourism is continuing with its efforts to develop the country’s sports tourism sector by supporting professional events and raising its profile on an international level.

Qatar has been hosting the Qatar Moto Grand Prix for almost two decades, gathering residents and visitors from all over the region to come and watch the thrilling season opener, says Qatar Tourism Chief Operating Officer Berthold Trenkel.

A Special Moto Exhibition will also be showcased on the sidelines of the event, to introduce and present the sport’s iconic history. Fans will have the opportunity to photograph and explore over 20 legendary vehicle models and enjoy a graffiti art segment when life-sized 3D motorbikes will be painted by local graffiti artists.

Qatar Motor and Motorcycle Federation (QMMF) and LCSC President Abulrahman Al-Mannai, said it is also important to acknowledge and appreciate the generous sponsorship and unwavering support they received from Qatar Tourism. Aside from the main event, he said that this year’s MotoGP Championship is also hosting a variety of activities that were organised to complement the event for a top-tier experience that will set a new benchmark for fans of the sport.
