Construction work at 50%, race against time to bring MotoGP to Indonesia

VIDEO - The service road and drainage system are under construction at Mandalika. Work expected (and hoped for) to end in June, approval in July


Work is continuing on the Mandalika circuit in Indonesia. The Mandalika Grand Prix Association (MGPA), which is the official organizer of the Indonesian Grand Prix MotoGP race, is speeding up the construction work on the Mandalika Highway Circuit. Through its Instagram account, MGPA reported that development work on the new circuit has reached 42.98%. At this moment the surfacing of the service road is in progress.

"The work on the tunnel bodies 1 and 2 has been completed 100 percent. Now, the construction of the retaining walls for each tunnel is continuing - explained MGPA as reported by - We are also working on a drainage system. This system is not made without care. The model has received a license from the FIM, and a drainage system like this is also used in other circuits. We even brought in supervision from Germany to work on it. "

The MGPA is currently racing against time to complete the work of the Mandalika Circuit; Dorna, in fact, has not fixed a date for Indonesian GP and has put it among the reserves of the 2021 championship together with Portimao and Igora (Russia). The homologation process for the circuit should take place in July and for this reason the work must be completed by June 2021, as confirmed by the Chief Strategic Communication Officer of MGPA Happy Harinto.
