VIVA – Indonesia will be one of the hosts for the 2022 MotoGP season. The most prestigious two-wheeled racing event in the world is scheduled to take place at the Mandalika Circuit, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB), on March 18-20, 2022.
But the problem is, the Mandalika Circuit track is currently not 100 percent ready. The track had to be re-paved because of the many criticisms from MotoGP racers.
One of the drivers who criticized the asphalt condition of the Mandalika Circuit was Fabio Quartararo. For the 2021 MotoGP champion, the Mandalika Circuit must be re-paved in several areas for safety.
Not only Yamaha team racers who gave criticism, several other names such as Aleix Espargaro to Francesco Bagnaia also opened their voices.
ITDC President Director Abdulbar M. Mansoer said, currently the Mandalika Circuit has carried out the initial stage of peeling the asphalt surface.
Meanwhile, another team is preparing raw materials to coat the surface of the track that has been peeled off and will also prepare heavy equipment.
