I’m so excited that the new season of MotoGP is about to start. The race at the Losail Circuit in Qatar marks the beginning of the first race of the season out of 17 total. I know that Valentino Rossi is going to win his ninth championship of his career, just one premier championship away from meeting Giacomo Agostini’s record. I think that besides going to the Sunday race, I might be able to also go to the Friday warm-up and if that is the case, I will try to get Rossi’s autograph.
