Four-night schedule for Qatar MotoGP

Four-night schedule for Qatar MotoGP, from Thursday to Sunday.
It has been announced that the 2011 season-opening Qatar MotoGP round will be held over four nights, rather than the usual three.

The change to the normal MotoGP race-weekend format has officially been made so that all classes can practice at night.

Presumably, cold temperatures in the early hours meant the event could not stick to three nights and simply start later each night.

Note that warm-up for the 125cc and Moto2 classes will now be held on a different night to the actual races!

The full Qatar schedule is as follows:

it also shows that humans as a whole are idiotic and vain, in an era where conserving energy should be one of the worlds top priorities , we are thinking of ever increasing ways to waste as much as poss. There might be some justification if there weren't just a few camels watching. The team get three testing sessions for the season and a third of them are relevant to only one race, the data is pointless for the rest of the season??? Qatar is a bad joke cracked for pure personal greed. There are many countries with huge fans bases and weather suitable for racing who should be given the green light, such as indonesia. I suspect for most people qatar isn't even the start of the season, it's just a comedy event to show off just how mind boggling bizarre the dorna kingpins are.
