After the Official MotoGP tests, on March 5-7 and 10-12, it's now the turn of the Moto3 and Moto2 classes to have their final pre-season outing at the Losail Circuit in Qatar.

Both classes will be on track, in separate sessions, from Friday to Sunday. Free practice for the season-opening Qatar Grand Prix will then take place at the same circuit on the afternoon of March 26.
