The first MotoGP weekend action of 2008 opens the World Championships 60th season this Friday evening, under the floodlights of the Losail International Circuit in Qatar.

Given the honour of opening proceedings are the 125cc riders, on track from 6pm local time for their first free practice session of the year. The riders have enjoyed a day of clear skies and comfortable temperatures, and now attempt to follow up their testing from earlier this week with another successful outing under the cooler conditions of the Middle Eastern night.

The large-scale lighting project the biggest of its kind for a sporting event- is set to be turned on at 5pm on each of the three days of Grand Prix action, setting the scene for the showdown at sundown that lies ahead.

Times from tonights sessions can be followed on motogp.com
