As well as public places outside the circuit that will be able to accommodate up to 138 thousand spectators.
A hospital will also be built. The hospital is specifically for drivers and crew. “The hospital only functioned when there was a race event,” he said.
However, if the government wants to build a public hospital in the area there is no problem. “The hospital we built is adjacent to the circuit. That has become our standard, “he explained.
In the MotoGP area there is still a place to sell typical food for the community. But must follow the specific standards of the organizer.
“What must be neat, hygienic, and the price is affordable,” he stressed.
