DOHA: Qatar Motor and Motorcycle Federation (QMMF) has announced some modifications to the Qatar Off Road Championship.
“We’ve done some modifications after listening to the competitors. We have increased the number of rounds. It used to be six rounds, which is three rounds of survival and three rounds of Baja. Now it has become five rounds of Baja and three rounds of survival, taking it from six rounds to eight rounds.” said Executive Director Amro Al Hamad.
He added that the decision was taken after requests from drivers and riders.
“The two extra rounds of Baja are going to be in the international Bajas that we’re going to run here in Qatar very soon as part of the World Championship,” said Amro.
“It’s going to be significantly longer distances than the normal distance of the bajas that we do nationally. And this is going to encourage the competitors to go and compete on the international bajas with longer distances overseas.” he added.
The next round of the QORC will be held on January 26-27.
