A Guide to the Venue

Security, Ticket Check, & Scheduling

Before entering the circuit, all attendees are required to undergo a security check to ensure the safety of everyone attending. It is essential to review the list of prohibited and restricted items before planning your arrival to avoid having any items confiscated. Restricted items can be safely stored in designated offices for collection after the event. 

Furthermore, please ensure that your mobile phone is fully charged, and you have sufficient cellular data, as you will need to display your ticket's QR code at the venue gates. Ticket scanning is mandatory each time you leave venue security perimeter to avoid re-entry denial.

It is important for attendees to ensure that the ticket is valid; all ticket sales are made through the official Lusail circuit website and ticket sales will not be available at the venue. Additionally, unauthorized purchases of tickets from third-party sellers is prohibited. 

Fanzone activations

All spectators holding a valid ticket can access and enjoy activities in the Fan Zone. Organizing teams and signs will be present to guide attendees in the designated areas seamlessly.

The Fan Zone promises to offer entertaining activities and games, suitable for families and children. Food and beverage vendors will also provide a wide variety of international and local flavors.

There will be something for everyone to experience at the fanzone. Some activities include giant puzzles, an opportunity to meet your favorite rider, face painting, 3D doodle, build your lego, simulators, electric motorcycles for kids, and 360-degree video booths.

Additionally, spectators will also be able to enjoy cultural experiences at the venue, such as Arabic coffee tasting, oud and bakhoor display, henna, and date palate adventure.

Spectators will also be able to visit booths of exhibitors and partners to enhance their overall race experience.

Additional recommendations

LIC is dedicated to making the race weekend a seamless experience for everyone. Therefore, it is recommended that attendees wear comfortable shoes and stay hydrated considering the length and expansive offering of the event. 

For parents with children, consider heading to the Info Point located behind the Main Grandstand to obtain bracelets with your contact details labelled with them to facilitate the search for missing kids.

Please adhere to the no-smoking policy, as lighters are among the prohibited items. Smoking is permitted only in designated smoking zones and is strictly prohibited in grandstands, food and beverage areas, and certain activation areas.

The venue will practice a no-tolerance policy towards attendees whose conduct is deemed to be inappropriate at the venue. It is requested for all spectators to respect the guidelines and be mindful of others attending.
