The opening of the World Superbike or WSBK and MotoGP at the Mandalika Indonesia circuit will only be attended by 15 percent of the audience. One of the considerations is the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Whereas as is known, the Mandalika circuit which will host the MotoGP and World Superbike events has a capacity of up to 188,000 thousand spectators. The Mandalika Grand Prix Association estimates that 20,000 to 30,000 spectators or about 15 percent of the maximum number of circuits will allow for the race without crowds. bbseparator "We clearly want to hold events that are safe for everyone, and this is the basis of our main goal. If it is allowed to have an audience at Mandalika, we will see a percentage of the total capacity. And because we’re sitting in a very large open area and open environment, having 20-30000 spectators per day means 15 percent of capacity.” said Ricky Baheramsjah, CEO of MGPA, quoted from Crash. He added, maybe this number is very small, but the most important thing is to learn from other circuits that have held motorsport events. Everything can be deployed and made adjustments. “We just don’t want to waste the opportunity for the audience to come and watch the World Superbike and MotoGP events at Mandalika,” he explained. Meanwhile, MGPA’s Director of Strategy and Communication, Happy Harinto added, it is very difficult to hold a race like this in the middle of a pandemic, but everyone is waiting for instructions from the government whether it is allowed with spectators or not. “But what is clear, we from MGPA are ready. The track has been completed, and the remaining facilities are just a matter of time,” concluded Happy Harinto. Source: Suara.com
