The Losail Graveyard!

Greeker
By Greeker

I turned right, off the Losail-Doha highway, seeing the board 'Losail Graveyard'. A 25-minute search took me nowhere. And then I saw this.

The Losail Graveyard!

It was poetic justice (to the signboard on the roadside) at it's best!

Shame on everyone, such prestigious coast line, and yet 'NO ONE CARES ABOUT IT'

1-Let me guess, those tires are for experimentation of a natural under water coral reef, the problem is that they are sitting in dry ground......

2- Better yet, it is the play ground of the local population of Bedouin kids...

if it was the case, those tyres would've been long gone, put to blockade streets and lighten up! maybe exporting them to iran or to the xiangyang'ughurs in china seems appropriate! still it's only a few dozen tyres.

I was trrying to find the Losail graveyard and found this symbolic sight instead... It was a grave yard... for tyres. It was ironic, i felt. At the height of its powers, these tyres zoomed at over 200kmph. And now, they just lie there, discarded, under the sun and hail. Strangely, i found this scene tragically poetic, but then again, it just might be me...

@ shoeaddict: Thanks for the welcome back thingie. I appreciate it.

@ Lusitano: If it indeed is, then it ain't that effective, is it?

Reply to your last comment--> That's what I tried to convey through this picture too...

@ Someonenew: The search continues.

@ Rizks: That's the Losail race track in the background. And yes, it appears to be a graveyard for tyres, which were high-performance ones in a previous life not so long ago...

@ Chuckspeak: You hit the nail on the head.

@ Eco-Savvy: I know.

@ Pitstop: Never been there, may provide another photo-op. Could you guide me there?

@ Skanky" You too, Skanky. I've been inside the shooting ranges several times. But I haven't seen it. But I confess this idea didn't occur to me. Shall check it out the next time I'm there. Thanks for the thought.

One weekend I drive around too trying to find it and no luck.

Even I went behind the shooting range and nothing, I dont know if the graveyard is inside the shooting range.

Anyone knows anything about this place?

This is nothing compared to the Tyre Dump that is in Al Khor, by Al Nouf Chalets. I was driving over there once to our place and got lost in the mess. It smelled bad and I was disturbed by it.

Why not recycle it?

its illegal to dump this waste in developed countries.

Now we will print more glossy leaflets and talk about green tyres

It's ironic how it's plonked next to a circuit sah? Although I guess they got to put all the burnt out tyres somewhere rather than burn them and contribute even more to global warming :-p
