The Mandalika Grand Prix Association (MGPA) said that the MotoGP race in the Mandalika Special Economic Zone (KEK) will still be on schedule. “There is no cancellation or delay,” said MGPA Happy Harinto Chief Strategic Communication Officer in last August.
He stated that delays did exist related to the Covid-19 pandemic, but this too was only one month. He added that the construction team will still be able to catch up with the progress of the construction so that it will finish according to schedule. No changes.
That means the circuit test schedule and race implementation will still be held next year. “Again, there are no cancellations and delays,” press Happy.
MGPA, in charge of circuit construction and racing technical affairs, ensures that it remains and continues to oversee. Physical and non-physical. Moreover, the circuit in the Mandalika Special Economic Zone is the only street race circuit cluster in the world.
He said it was all for the people of West Nusa Tenggara province and Indonesia. Because there are three positive effects of MotoGP. First, the tourism industry sector. MotoGP will determine the progress of tourism in Indonesia and the world. Second, in terms of branding. Whatever product Indonesia has, it will certainly be voiced at the world level. Both products of state and regional owned enterprises and the community in general. Third, the multiplier effect, can create new job opportunities, increase the economy, and much more.
Clean Water Supply
Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Local Government’s Water Company Lalu Perwira Bakti, added that the Water Company will support and succeed in the development of the Mandalika Special Economic Zone. And in particular, the MotoGP event.
The plan is to prepare a source of clean water. The plan is to take water sources from Pengga Dam, Pengga Village, South West Praya District. The water company will provide clean water capacity of 200 lps. Meanwhile, clean water infrastructure on the MotoGP circuit will be the responsibility of the central government. “Physical and non-physical (infrastructure) needs (are the responsibility) of the central government,” said Perwira Bakti, the retired Indonesia’s army officer.
