Indonesia has signed a deal with Dorna to host MotoGP races for five years. The first will be held in 2021 under the organizing of MGPA, a business unit of state-owned ITDC.
During Saturday’s launch, the organizers said they would offer 20,000 pre-booked spots, starting from Jan. 20 until August 2020, for racing fans via motogp.com and Mandalika Grand Prix Association’s (MGPA) official website, mandalikagrandprix.com
"By pre-booking tickets, MotoGP superfans will have the opportunity to choose seats either in grandstand or general admission," CEO of MGPA Ricky Baheramsjah said in a statement. "Nevertheless, we have not decided the ticket price because we’re still discussing it with Dorna. The ticket price will depend on the race day and seating category.
