LONDON, England - Qatar will stay on the MotoGP calendar until at least 2026 after signing a contract extension on Sunday with promoter Dorna Sports.

The race in the Middle East had its debut in 2004 and the Losail circuit has staged the season-opener since 2007. It became the sport's first night MotoGP in 2008.

The current contract was due to expire at the end of 2016.

'VERY EXCITED'

Qatar Motor and Motorcycle Federation president Nasser bin Khalifa al-Attiyah said in a statement:

"We are very excited about continuing our partnership with MotoGP and securing our place in the calendar for a further decade.”
