The motor stars and their cars will be racing down the strip of Lusail Boulevard, and the FIA World Endurance Championship hypercar will be on display. 

Free of charge, the event includes a live music performance from an internationally renowned artist, a firework display, and other performances. Attendees are invited to take the metro, or to park around the Lusail Boulevard. 

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, H E Akbar Al Baker, said: “Following the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, and now a growing motorsports presence, Qatar is quickly becoming a hub for global sporting events. Qatar Airways will continue to display the synergy between travel and sports, giving fans the ultimate travel experience to their favourite events, especially in Qatar.

We look forward to hosting a special evening of motorsport extravaganza at the world-class Lusail Boulevard, where fans can get close to the action and feel the thrills and excitement of different automobiles.”
