TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - An expert team from the Presidential Staff Office (KSP) reported that it had supervised the World Superbike (WSBK) event held in Indonesia’s latest race track, Mandalika Circuit, located in Central Lombok in West Nusa Tenggara. 

In Sunday’s press release, the Presidential Staff Office conveyed their appreciation for the event that was held at the newly-built circuit but gave a number of notes that they expect would be noticed before the track hosts a MotoGp race in 2022, which in scale they say will be five-times larger than last week’s WSBK event. 

“We witnessed the event succeed as the government had aimed to accomplish by attracting 25 thousand visitors. However, for bigger events such as MotoGP, there are a number of aspects that need improvement,” said KSP expert member Albertien Pirade Antaranews reported, ”With a short 3-month preparation, the KSP will fully-support the fixing processes.”

One of the KSP’s main concerns that need serious attention, according to Priade, is Mandalika Circuit’s drainage system that they deem was unable to accommodate the water caused by high-intensity rainfall. He said there were a number of locations that were inundated but were not in positions to affect the race. 

Moreover, the Mandalika Grand Prix Association (MGPA) reported that DORNA Sports, as organizers for MotoGP and WSBK series, appreciated Mandalika Circuit’s configuration but had a number of notes that could be improved. “MGPA and Dorna Sports are immediately working to prepare for the MotoGP event slated for March of 2022,” said MGPA CEO Ricy Baheramsjah.
