TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Indonesian Motor Association (IMI) has officially sent the design of the Mandalika Circuit earlier this month to the Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) as a homologation requirement to host a race in the 2021 Motogp season.
IMI Chairman Sadikin Aksa said that it is the final design that will be built by the Indonesia Tourism Development Company (ITDC) in Mandalika.
“It was sent in early January,” said Sadikin to Tempo on Monday, January 27. “We now wait for the safety commission’s meeting result. We will be notified again after the process is done.”
The former professional racer said ITDC is currently focused on completing Mandalika Circuit’s construction and added that FIM will not conduct a visit to the international-scale race track in Lombok as the governing body is still busy with other preparations.
The upcoming MotoGP race weekend will be managed by the Mandalika Grand Prix Association (MGPA) as its event organizer, which has been officially introduced by the government-formed ITDC back on November 23.
