The Losail International Circuit in Qatar, which opened in 2004, was built by the country’s motorcycling federation. It is situated a short distance to the north of the Qatari capital Doha.

The 5.4-kilometre (3.35 mile) layout features 16 corners and little elevation change. It is bordered by a mixture of asphalt, artificial grass and gravel. The circuit is fully floodlit, allowing races to take place at night.
