MotoGP Qatar GP

Graphic News

March 20, 2018 -- The 2018 MotoGP season, commencing with the Qatar GP in March and concluding in Valencia in November, features 12 teams and 23 riders.

The opening GP takes place at the Losail International Circuit, Qatar.

The track is 5.380 km in length, with a main straight of just over a kilometre at 1,068 metres. It has 16 turns; 6 left and 10 right.

The Safety Commission decided that at the Losail test the final hour will see riders take to an artificially wet track, so that they are better prepared in case of rain. Last year, the weather caused chaos, with Saturday cancelled altogether.


21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
