With less than 10 days until the upcoming Superbike World Championship (WSBK) grand prix at Lombok’s Mandalika Circuit, event organizers have begun to raise awareness on the requirement that spectators must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to watch the race live.
The 13th round of the WSBK is scheduled from Nov. 19 to 21, making it Mandalika International Street Circuit’s second event after Idemitsu Asia Talent Cup (IATC), which will take place from Nov. 12 to 14.
In an Instagram post, the Mandalika Grand Prix Association (MGPA) laid out some terms and conditions for live spectators, who must have received two jabs against COVID-19 and present a negative result from either a PCR or rapid antigen test. Those below 12 years old are prohibited from entering the circuit area, while the PeduliLindungi tracking app is mandatory for all attendees.
Foreign nationals are also expected to show their vaccine certificate and PCR or rapid antigen test results, according to a procedure that organizers have sent via email.
Daily tickets for WSBK went on sale this week, with prices for Day 1 of the race starting at IDR150K (US$10.52) before tax. For links to the Mandalika event’s official ticketing partners, click here.
Last week, many local residents lamented the steep price range to watch the world-class racing event live, even when it’s happening on their own island.
