JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – A travel bubble scheme will be implemented in the upcoming MotoGP Indonesian Grand Prix from March 18-20 in the new Mandalika circuit on the island of Lombok.

The Mandalika Grand Prix Association (MGPA) said that the scheme will be applied to crews and racers during the pre-season test sessions and the MotoGP race.

MGPA vice president director Cahyadi Wanda said once the entourage arrives, they will be separated from the public. The racers and their officials could only meet with the committee and teams. “Once they arrive, we will undergo PCR tests, escort them to their hotels, while waiting for the PCR test results,” said Cahyadi in Jakarta on Wednesday, Feb. 2.

He said that the entourage will only be allowed to carry out their activities once the PCR test results are issued. However, the activities are very limited.

“They can only be allowed to go to the circuit from their hotels and vice versa. We would not be able to see riders eating in restaurants as it happened during the previous Superbike event,” he said.

He added the MotoGP entourage will be monitored directly by the Covid-19 Task Force and a special task force in charge of the travel bubble.

“This is not new as it was done before during the motorcycle race in Sepang [Malaysia] amid the Covid-19.”
