Minister of Culture and Sports HE Salah bin Ghanem bin Nasser al-Ali inaugurated the new headquarter of Qatar Centre for Motorcycles (Batabit) on Thursday at Qatar Sports Club (QSC) in conjunction with the launch of the new season of the Centre.
In a speech on the occasion of inaugurating the facility, the Minister stressed the need for all citizens and residents of Qatar to serve the country from their position, whether they were students, professionals, labourers, sportsmen or otherwise. “We must make every effort to promote the State of Qatar, because we are all soldiers under its flag,” he said.
He called for developing the programmes and activities carried out by Batabit Centre with emphasis on safety in all the activities. He also pointed to the awareness role that should be played by each member of the centre to attract all those who exercise this sport and ensure their safety, both within Doha and at Sealine.
For his part, Qatar Sports Club president HE Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad bin Nasser al-Thani said, “We are pleased to have Batabit Centre as a new member of QSC family.”
Qatar Centre for Motorcycles (Batabit) director Mohamed al-Kubaisi talked about the activities of the new season, which started on Thursday evening with a march of over 300 riders, from the Ministry of Culture and Sports in Al Dafna area to Qatar Sports Club headquarters through Corniche. The march saw a large number of Qatari youth and residents of different nationalities gathered wearing T-shirt with the ‘Tamim Al Majd’ mural, confirming patriotism and loyalty to His Highness the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani.
