MotoGP ready to break new boundaries in 2004

The MotoGP World Championship breaks new boundaries in 2004, with the Losail International Circuit in Qatar set to become the latest addition to a list of spectacular new destinations to host the world's premier motorcycling series.

The season kicks off at Welkom on April 18th, as it did in 2000 when Garry McCoy slid his way to a famous victory, with the betandwin.com Africa's Grand Prix before returning to the northern hemisphere for round two at Jerez, the Gran Premio Marlboro de España, the first race of a pan-European adventure which takes in seven races in just three months.

A trip to the Nelson Piquet circuit in Brazil for the Cinzano Rio Grand Prix at the end of July briefly interrupts the European season, which continues after a four-week summer break at Brno with the Gauloises Grand Prix Ceske Republiky. Another brief globetrotting trek takes the teams and riders to the Twin Ring Motegi Circuit for the Camel Grand Prix of Japan in September, before a three week ‘flyaway' stint, kicking off with that historic first visit to Middle East for the Marlboro Grand Prix of Qatar.

As is now almost tradition, the season ends in the loudest and most spectacular possible fashion at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in November, when 121,000 fans are sure to pack out the stands and provide the perfect send-off to the 2004 season at the Gran Premio Marlboro de la Comunitat Valenciana.
