A1GP Lippo Village

Indonesian fans of A1GP World Cup of Motorsport who have already marked their calendars for the A1GP Lippo Village, Indonesia scheduled to be held from the 6th to 8th of February 2009 will need to prepare to be thrilled as the new Lippo Village street circuit has been unveiled. With much anticipation of the track layout, a press conference was held to raise the curtains on the new track that will host the first ever street race in Indonesia and the only one in the A1GP calendar for Season 2008/2009.

A project of this scale obviously needed meticulous planning and design, and as such no expense was spared. The circuit was designed by non other than Herman Tilke, from the renowned German race track designer, Tilke Gmbh, considered by many as the world’s best. The 3.2 km circuit will run clock-wise incorporating 12 turns that is bound to keep even the most discerning of motorsports fans on their feet. Although the circuit was designed to first of all fulfill the stringent FIA safety regulations, it still provides a challenging and exciting track with an average speed of 176km/h and the top speed reaching over 300km/h.

With an influx of race goers and increased activity in Lippo Village, traffic control is an important aspect of the event. The Town Management Department, together with the Promoters is working with local authorities to assist in ensuring smooth flow of traffic leading to the circuit during race weekend. Spectators are advised to car pool and take alternative forms of transport to the circuit. These include shuttle buses available from various points in Jakarta and remote car park locations to the circuit gantry. Information on the best way to get to the circuit will be made available in December.

Tickets to the A1GP Lippo Village will go on sale beginning 05 December 2008.
