about Losail International Circuit

Losail International Circuit (Arabic: ???? ????? ???????) is a motor racing circuit located just outside in the town of Lusail, north of Doha, Qatar.

Built in just under a year by 1,000 workers at the cost of US$58 million, the track opened in 2004 to the inaugural 2004 Qatar motorcycle Grand Prix, won by Sete Gibernau.The track is 5.380 kilometres (3.343 mi) in length, with a main straight of 1,068 metres (3,504 ft). It is surrounded by artificial grass to stop the sand encroaching on the track.

In 2007, Losail added permanent outdoor lighting for night races. At the time, the lighting of the Losail Circuit by Musco Lighting was the largest permanent venue sports lighting project in the world, a distinction that now belongs to another Persian Gulf motorsport venue, Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi. The first night race in MotoGP history was the 2008 Qatar motorcycle Grand Prix in March 2008.

In February 2009, a GP2 Asia Series nighttime race took place. The qualifying lap record was achieved by Nico Hülkenberg with 1:35.741.The WSBK visited Losail in 2005–2009 and 2014–2019; and the WTCC visited there in 2015–2017.

The circuit is due to host the 20th race of the 2021 Formula One season, the inaugural edition of the Qatar Grand Prix.
