If a vehicle does not have any of the identification stickers, it will not be allowed to enter the area.
Mataram, NTB (ANTARA) - The West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) Regional Police have prepared two mechanisms for regulating the entry of spectators’ vehicles during the Pertamina Grand Prix of Indonesia, which will take place from March 18–20, 2022.

To implement the mechanisms, the regional police have prepared two types of stickers for vehicles: “all-access stickers” and “non-all access” stickers.

Regional Police Traffic Director Senior Commissioner Djoni Widodo informed here on Monday that vehicles with “all-access” stickers will be able to access the entire Pertamina Mandalika International Street Circuit area.

“The ‘all access’ stickers will be given specifically for vehicles of the racing crew, organizers, and invited guests,” he informed.

Vehicles with "non-all access" stickers will have limited access.

These stickers will be attached to vehicles belonging to micro, small, and medium enterprise (MSMEs) actors opening their stalls in the circuit area, special rental transportation (ASK), public rental transportation (ASU), and general spectators’ vehicles.

For instance, the ASK will only be permitted to enter the east or west parking area. Meanwhile, MSMEs players’ vehicles will only be allowed access to the location of the stall.

“If a vehicle does not have any of the identification stickers, it will not be allowed to enter the area," the traffic director stressed.

In addition, vehicles transporting MSME goods and supporting equipment will only be allowed to operate in the circuit area from midnight till 7 a.m. Central Indonesia Standard Time (WITA).

"If the MSMEs vehicles are still inside the circuit later than 7 a.m. WITA, they will have to leave the area, and no other MSMEs vehicles will be allowed to enter the area. This is aimed at avoiding vehicle crowding in the area," Widodo said.

Regarding traffic supervision, he said that the government will dispatch a number of patrol and inspecting teams to several locations.

Furthermore, 5,600 vehicle stickers have been prepared for the racing event, which will be distributed by the NTB Provincial Transportation Office, he added.
