The legendary Prince Of Dakar and champion is actually a huge fan of the elite motorcycle racing series. You can say that Nasser Al Attiyah lives on anything that gives him pumping adrenaline rush: Dakar Rally, the Middle East Rally Championship series or even two-wheels motorcycle racing!
Since MotoGP™ commenced it's 2017 season in Qatar at Losail International Circuit yestarday, Nasser decided to head off to the circuit.
Now let’s start with the 3 facts, shall we?
#1: The last time Nasser attended a MotoGP™ race in Qatar was 9 years ago.
Due to his annually busy schedule with all the races and shooting championships Nasser is performing at, it has been difficult for him to witness a MotoGP™ race in Qatar at the circuit. Luckily for him (and us), Nasser returned to Losail International Circuit during qualifier and race day to witness the unparalleled thrill of MotoGP™! Did you take a picture with him?
#2: Nasser Al-Attiyah supports Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team!
Since KTM teamed up with Red Bull and entered for the first time MotoGP™ series, Nasser was seen with Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team at their paddock area during his visit, where he took a paddock tour and met with the management team. Nasser has a great relationship with the KTM team considering their strong presence in the off-road racing category.
#3: Valentino Rossi is one of Nasser’s friends.
Did you see that coming? Well, it’s true! Nasser has known Rossi since a couple of years ago, and have been friends ever since. For years, these two champions have visited each other whenever they had the chance to and maintained a great friendship, which can only be admired for its integrity and respect.
The MotoGP™ race was held yesterday, 26th March 2017. What an unforgettable night for everyone who attended the race at Losail International Circuit!
