The Losail International Circuit will light up this weekend for the opening round of the 2012 MotoGP World Championship. The Repsol riders, present in the three Grand Prix categories of MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3, are excited about the challenge ahead after an excellent two months of preseason. The Qatar Grand Prix will be the only race of the 18 on the MotoGP calendar to take place at night.

In the intermediate class, Marc Márquez will return to racing after almost six month out from competition —his most recent race being the 35 position comeback on raceday for a podium at Phillip Island. Now recovered from an injury suffered last year, the Repsol rider will be onboard his Suter at the 5380 metres long track where he failed to finish last season.

Marc Marquez: “I’ve been waiting for this week to arrive. We are heading to Doha this Tuesday, where we will be starting a new Moto2 season and hoping to achieve a much better result than last year. The entire team have worked very hard this winter to be ready for this moment and I only have words of thanks for them and the sponsors. The injury is less and less of an issue now, something that is a very positive sign for the start of the World Championship.

These have been difficult months, but once we arrive in Qatar there is no looking back and we must try to enjoy ourselves. The Losail track is one that I like: It’s fast, very unique and a place where I hope that the Suter can give maximum performance”.
