Al Bayt Stadium in the Qatari city of Al Khor will host the start and closing ceremonies of the Baja Qatar International Motorcycle, one of the Baja FEM Motorcycle World Cup rounds, which will be held from September 30 to October 2.

The Qatar Automobile and Motorcycle Association confirmed today that the sports facilities of the Al Bayt Stadium in the city of Al Khor, which is 35 kilometers from the capital Doha, will receive the Qatar Baja, which managed to attract a large list of participants as the number of registered participants reached 35 participants from 6 countries, provided that the registration door closes on September 20.

Al Bayt Stadium, which can accommodate 60,000 spectators, was built specifically for the 2022 FIFA World Cup and will host the opening ceremony of the Qatar World Cup on November 21 next year, in addition to many matches.

The architectural design of the stadium, implemented by Aspire Zone Foundation, was inspired by the name of the House of Poetry, the tent inhabited by the people of the Badia in Qatar and the Gulf region throughout history.

“We are delighted to confirm that Al Bayt Stadium will host the start and end ceremonies,” said Amr Al Hamad, CEO of the Qatar Automobile and Motorcycle Federation, adding: “It is an amazing new facility that will welcome world football next year. We are fortunate to be able to use the stadium for the new round of the FIM Cross Country Rally World Cup Albaha MotoGP.”

The teams participating in the Qatar International Motorcycle Baja will have to run 3-speed stages with a distance of 504.24 km, knowing that the total distance of the Baha is 872.44 km.

The rules in force will allow the participation of motorcycles equipped with a 450cc engine (single or double cylinder, 2TO or 4T), as well as “quads” or four-wheeled motorcycles and light cars “SSV”.

Bikes with an engine capacity of more than 450 cc can participate in the Qatar Baja, but the riders participating on these bikes are not allowed to collect points in the Baja World Cup standings, according to the laws governing this series in 2021.
