Toseland ready for night race

Ramsey resident James Toseland makes his MotoGP debut this weekend at Qatar in the first ever night race.

After two days of testing in the dark under floodlights at the Losail Circuit, Toseland was second fastest ahead of title holder Casey Stoner, Valentino Rossi, Nicky Hayden and team-mate Colin Edwards.

The first official free pratice session takes place later today.
