Jaffar had some problems yesterday with his bike finishing in the fifth position in the first race and today his bike was not fixed but he didn’t have to worry as he already had the title even without racing today.

‘I am really glad to win this championship, as it was not easy to get this win, it was not easy and I am very happy because all the bike issues and troubles with my bike I kept them out and I managed to get the championship. There is a lot of work behind the rider that people don’t know as they just see the rider but we have to travel and drive many hours, leave the family in each round to compete and get points to win the title, so wining the championship is really something big that makes me really proud of myself and makes my team and coach also proud of me. I would like to thank to Red Bull, Sun Garde, Adidas and Balooshi Racing Team for all their support during this championship’ Jaffar said after his win.

Meshay Abou Shaibah also from Kuwait finished in second position in the MX1 championship and he was really happy for this result ‘First of all I would like to thank QMMF for this championship and all the support and also to Honda and Kuwait Racing for all the help. It is really good for me this second position and I am very happy with this position’. Abdullah Al Shatti also from Kuwait came third in the MX1 championship.

‘ I am really happy for this win and all the effort I have done during my four years of riding are now here in this victory and very happy to make it here in Qatar, in the Losail MX track. Thanks to QMMF for this amazing championship and also it is great to be here with the big guys of MXGP and ride in the same track as them. I also thank to KTM Kuwait for all their support’ Al Jasmi said after the podium. The second position was for Moath Al Ansari and Mohammed Al Hattab came in third overall.

Regarding the winners of the second race the victories were again for Jake Preston and Barak Al Jasmi as yesterday. In the MX1 Preston finished in first position and Denis Stapleton ended in second place. The third place was for the Spaniard QMMF Racing Team Julian Simon. ‘ I am really happy to participate in this race today and I enjoyed a lot. I had a lot of fun riding in the same track as world champions and thanks to QMMF for this opportunity. Today race was perfect, the start was perfect and I had a better rhythm during the race and the track conditions were also better today. I am really happy for this weekend results’

Great performance by Pol & Scott at the end💪🏼..that was a cracker💥..

I was there.....Brilliant racing!!

Very drunk day but remember the race. Loved watching Scott race. All packed and ready for Silverstone Thursday morning.

Fantastic battle 👍

however Mac Marquez with his current performance does not have to be Marquez's best

I was there, great finish. Home crowd went wild when Redding got back in front, then deadly silent when Marquez had a look up inside on last bend, then wild again when Redding cut back across. Amazing stuff!

Awesome pictures!


Very nice

Very nice

All these guys are big talents. Many riders like Pol Espargaro, Alvaro Bautista, Bradley Smith, Antony West & many more are great riders and capable of winning championships ( capable ). People underestimate these guys by their bad results, but material is key in these classes, especially in the MotoGp class. Give them a solid ride and they'll blow your mind

Redding never got the ride he deserved.

2019, #93 is the winner..😋🏁

special suter chassis for marc and mysterious team 😉 after marc step up to motogp, this team directly disappear, nobody know where are they now.

Just shows how good Redding was but never really got the bike to really take it to them in Motogp.

Man, I miss Scott Redding in the padock "let's get it babi"

Muy buena carrera no apta para cardíacos 🤭🤭🤭

Forget just how good Redding could have been with a decent bike


Nice to see maq battle for other place than 1st

The dramatic moment which cost Marc Márquez a shot at victory at Silverstone two years ago! 😱

The world champion's misfortune opened the door for Andrea Dovizioso to snatch the win! 💨

Good Day all.

Unlikely to be repeated! Hope Dovi brings his A game though. 👍🏼👍🏼

Gave the rest a chance

So what's new?? Sometimes these kind of technical failures happens in Motorsport... Very rare that engine blow sky high to premier class bike.

Fast forward >>>> he is the world champion!!
