I think it is a good construction solution.Jakarta (ANTARA) - The pit building for the 2021 Mandalika World Superbike (WSBK) has been constructed by state-owned corporation WIKA Gedung using domestic products and modular construction methods, the Mandalika Grand Prix Association (MGPA) has said.
"Hence, the building could be completed quickly. Many other international circuits have also got modular and non-permanent pit buildings, for instance in Monaco and Singapore," MGPA's director of strategy and communication, Happy Harinto, said during a Chat with ANTARA event here on Wednesday.
Furthermore, he lauded the ability of WIKA Gedung, which has been able to produce the modular building.
"Alhamdulillah (all praise be to God), Indonesia through WIKA Gedung has been able to meet all of the components, thus we have entrusted the construction to the company," he said.
The 350-meter-long pit building comprises three floors and has a capacity of 50 garages, he informed. The building was finished in one and a half months, he added.
"I think it is a good construction solution," the director remarked.
The garages used by the racers and team technicians are on the ground floor, whilst the second floor will serve as the VVIP audience stands and the media center, he said.
Meanwhile, the third floor of the pit building is intended for other supporting facilities, he added.
Currently, MGPA is speeding up the construction of the race control at the circuit, he said,
They informed that the homologation process for the venue could be carried out one week before the race day, he added.
Meanwhile, the construction of the track has been completed and the developer is currently accelerating the establishment of supporting facilities, for instance, the paddock building and painting the circuit, he said.
Earlier, in April, the circuit was inspected by Dorna Sports managing director Carlos Ezpeleta and Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) Grand Prix Safety Officer Franco Uncini. (
