The Bali Post quotes The Indonesian Minister of Sports, Roy Suryo, saying that Indonesia will soon build four international race circuits in Bali, Jakarta, Lombok and on Samosir Island in North Sumatra.
Suryo said the Jakarta Circuit would be located in the city center, duplicating how races are presented in Australia and Monaco.
Plans are apparently to create race circuits that use public roadways during the actual race events.
The Indonesian Sports Minister enthusiastically endorses the plan as a means of elevating the nation’s sporting image and encouraging young Indonesians interested in competitive car racing.
At the same time, Suryo cautioned that the Central Government would allocate no funding such projects, leaving financing to the private sector and regional governments.
Jakarta will, however, issue letters of recommendation in support of these projects.
