Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy of the Republic of Indonesia, Sandiaga Uno said the MXGP race event will be a calendar of National and International events which are held every year.
“MXGP will become a calendar of national and international events and I immediately agreed to this,” said Sandiaga at a press conference at the Samota Sumbawa circuit, Sunday (26/6/2022).

This was conveyed by him after hearing and getting various inputs and results from the stretching of the MXGP event for the first time in Sumbawa.
“I immediately agreed to this earlier, without thinking,” he said.
Not only that, Sandiaga also revealed that the tourism potential in the Sumbawa Regency area is one of the priorities so that it can support events on a national and international scale.
“The beauty of Sumbawa can be explored again. Many locations can be used as destination plans, because NTB is not only Lombok or Mandalika, but also Sumbawa,” he said.
Later, the motocross circuit will not only be in Sumbawa, but also in Central Lombok. The two racing arenas are expected to become an arena to raise NTB tourism again.
“The two racing arenas, such as in Lombok and Sumbawa, can be implemented and can raise priority tourist destinations to become international destinations,” he said.
