The Losail International Circuit is a motor racing circuit located just outside in the town of Lusail, north of Doha, Qatar.

Circuit History[]

Opened in 2004 with a construction cost of US$58 million, the circuit is primarily host to the Qatar Grand Prix for MotoGP, including a double-header Doha Grand Prix in 2021. Lighting for the track was added in 2007, with the first night MotoGP race on the track taking place in 2008. The Losail circuit has also hosted races for GP2, World Superbikes (WSBK) and the WTCC.

On September 30, 2021, it was announced that Losail would be host to the inaugural Qatar Grand Prix in Formula One to replace canceled races in the calendar due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The circuit has also signed a 10-year deal to host F1 from 2023 onwards, with a gap in 2022 due to Qatar as the host for the FIFA World Cup.
