GP2 bosses have announced that a Qatar night race will replace the second scheduled round at Dubai in this winter's GP2 Asia Series.
The fourth round of the championship was due to take place in Dubai on February 25-26, but has been brought forward to Feb 6-7 and switched to the Losail circuit.
The event will be GP2's first night race, following the lead of Formula One's race under lights in Singapore in September.
GP2 boss Bruno Michel is delighted to be bringing the night racing concept into GP2.
"I am very pleased to report that we will be having a night race weekend in Qatar," he said. "It is a very exciting new challenge and one that GP2 is happy to take up.
"The grand prix in Singapore proved to be a success, generating tremendous interest among both media and fans all over the world. We are confident that the GP2 Asia Series will offer the same kind of dramatic action in Qatar in true GP2 style."
The Losail circuit in Qatar held a night race at the beginning of 2008 as the opening round of the MotoGP championship.
