The provisional entry list has been announced, the venues are prepared, the riders are raring to go, the fans are tingling with anticipation and that can mean only one thing. It's time for the 2011 MotoGP World Championship, which gets underway on March 20th with the opening round in Qatar. The fabulous Losail International Circuit lies on the outskirts of Doha, the capital city of Qatar. Built in little over a year, the track cost $58 million and required round-the-clock dedication from almost 1,000 workers in order to get it ready for the inaugural event, the Grand Prix of Qatar back in 2004. The track itself is a flowing layout of 5.4km, surrounded by artificial grass designed to prevent sand from the neighbouring desert from blowing onto the circuit. The main straight is over a kilometre in length and there is a good mix of medium and high-speed corners, including a couple of quick left-handers which has proved particularly popular with the riders.
