A new circuit is going to be brought into existence not so far from Spain’s capital.
It seems to be very likely that a new track is going to be built in Spain. It has been revealed that the local government has approved the construction of the new racetrack of the Grand Prix level near Morata de Tajuna, a town, situated in the Madrid suburbs. People, accountable for the track, intend to host Formula 1 and MotoGP races. The track is expected to be 4.5 km long, which includes a 650-metres-long straight. Approximately 80000 fans will be able to spectate the racing action live on the track.
The town mayor Angel Sanchez gives a comment to Formulapassion.it: “The idea is to build a facility that will operate 280 days a year with motorsport events and concerts in the summer.”
Sanches also shares confidence about the fact that all permissions will be given: “I don’t think there will be any problems obtaining the necessary permits because it will be in a very degraded area and with totally unproductive land.”
As of now, there have not been any news regarding the negotiations between Formula 1 and the track representatives about the possibility of F1’s visit to Morata de Tajuna.
