THE third round of Qatar Superstock 600cc Championship for bikes will be held at Losail on March 25.
The premier road racing championship, jointly organised by the Qatar Motor and Motorcycle Federation and Losail Circuit Sports Club, was launched in January with the main aim of promoting local riders.
The opening two rounds were held during the day. However, the third round, which coincides with the MotoGP weekend, will be organised under lights.
Each round has two races, with the competitors using a standard one-make 600cc fuel-efficient bike.
Mishal Al Naimi, who won both races in the opening round and one in the second, leads the standings with 95 points.
Saeed Al Sulaiti, who stopped Mishal’s winning run in Race 2 of second round, is 10 points behind him while Nasser Al Malki is a distant third with 64 points.
The six-round series will conclude in May.
