After so many news about MotoGP will add a lot of circuit for next season, like India, Singapore, South Africa and South America, a couple days ago on April 12th 2011, Texas lands already confirmed to be circuit for three classes of MotoGP World Championship, and they have confirmed for 10 years.At present the circuit is under construction and will be finished sometimes in the middle of 2012.
Whats the Grand prix Championship? All people know about MotoGP, it is very popular around the world. Indonesia have a lot of fans of MotoGP. And they all are very enthusiastic to watch live the Grand Prix. The nearest circuit from Indonesia is Sepang International Circuit.
Not many people know that Indonesia has ever organized MotoGP in 1996 and 1997, and Valentino Rossi the best rider ever has already rode at the circuit and got Championship at 1997 when he was in 125 cc class and in 1996 Valentino Rossi only able on 11th position.
The circuit name is SENTUL INTERNATIONAL CIRCUIT , the characteristic of the circuit is 4.12 km with the width is 15 meter, 11 corner and have 50 pit garage.The circuit was constructed in 1990 and was concerned to be used for F1 circuit and in 1993 for the first time officially opened and used for the Australian based Formula Holden series as a demonstration.but the tight corners and short length circuit was rendered unsuitable for the fast and furious world of Formula One.
In 2008, Sentul circuit was scheduled for SBK at October 12th, but the FIM canceled it because of the safety factor like the track and drainage conditions are considered poor and although heavy rain fell a few days before the race,the asphalt condition still not accepted to be used. The condition of the track became a major problem. Vehicles and helmets of the drivers were hit by gravels that flies from the broken circuit.Its all happened during the event of GP2 Asia.
When we look all the story of Sentul, looks like Sentul International circuit already confirmed to be MotoGP 2013 is only in my dream. So do you think its all over, of course not, Indonesia is a big country and very rich, the country has a lot of beauty and charm.and as a large country in Asia, of course, Indonesia deserves to be the host of MotoGP championship.
Indonesia should be in communication with motor racing federation, about what steps should be done in order to gain trust as the host of MotoGP. And do not stop dreaming about this. All will be beautiful and come at the time. I love Indonesia
