2. Indonesia’s Mandalika Circuit for MotoGP 2021 Moving Ahead of Schedule
The Mandalika project in Lombok, Indonesia is 32.50 percent complete as of mid-November 2020 though more is needed to prepare for its MotoGP 2021 debut.
State-owned construction firm PT Pembangunan Perumahan (PT PP) is responsible for the progress of the Mandalika circuit which is situated in the Mandalika Special Economic Zone (KEK).
Despite having reached a completion rate of less than 40 percent as of mid-November, the company asserts that the construction process is moving ahead far quicker than they planned.
“Even today, the company is pushing for road constructions at the Mandalika Special Economic Zone which will be used as part of the MotoGP circuit during which Indonesia will be the host of the 2021 event,” said PT PP president director Novel Arsyad.
Novel is confident that the Mandalika circuit construction will deliver high-quality results and under international standards set by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile.
The Mandalika project in Lombok is worth 899 billion rupiahs ($63.6 million) and is owned by the Indonesia Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC).
