Another day, another
The Losail International Circuit was built in 2004 for $58 million primarily as a motorcycle racing track. It has held top-level events for the MotoGP and Superbike series, and even held a Grand Prix Masters race in 2006. But to get up to F1 standards, it will need massive improvements, including large run-off areas to make it safe enough for Formula One cars to do their thing. The local racing federation is now inviting tenders to bid on the project, but even once the renovations are complete, that won't mean it will get a race.
